Today, alternative investments have become an integral part of institutional investor portfolios.

We provide comprehensive advice in this field from initial structural plans right up to exit. Our Alternative Investments Group pools all the necessary expertise and supports you in your investments on a global scale, be it foreign investments in German assets or supporting German investors in other countries.

Our scope of advice includes in particular:

  • asset expertise and market intelligence in all fields
  • advice on regulatory, tax and corporate law aspects (on the investment itself, as well as on fund structuring and documentation)
  • banking law advice on structuring the various financing products, loan documentation or syndication options relating to loan funds in the interests of lightening your balance sheet
  • due diligence
  • end-to-end transaction advice on buying and selling via share deals or asset deals
  • capital-market transactions, e.g. securitisations or investments in stock exchange-listed alternative assets
  • additional advice on specialist areas as necessary, e.g. employment law, antitrust law or IP

Our clients include infrastructure funds and private equity funds, asset managers, banks, hedge funds, insurance companies and pension funds, as well as companies and corporate groups whose activities focus on alternative assets.
