Broich Bezzenberger
The merger between Broich, Bayer, von Rom and Bezzenberger is not based on considerations of size, interest in extending our reach or in expanding our lines of service. We are not, and never will be, one of the largest German and Austrian firms in terms of the number of lawyers we employ, the offices we maintain, nor the areas of law in which we advise our clients.

We have merged in order to form a premier German and Austrian corporate and finance law boutique offering expert counsel in corporate situations, and on the most complex and demanding transactions and financings, as well as on corporate litigation. This has brought together the know-how and expertise of some of the leading corporate lawyers and litigators in Germany and Austria, forming a team with many years of experience in advising German blue chip and Fortune 500 companies, as well as global financial players, on highly complex and challenging transactions. Our attorneys are not mere legal specialists; they have the commercial mindset to focus on the big picture, while striving to deliver clean and perfect legal solutions to any given problem.

Our merger brings together some of the finest practices in Germany and Austria:
* Our attorneys are among the leading specialists in providing advice to boards in takeovers, defenses, shareholder interactions, and special situations.
* Our firm houses the pre-eminent German and Austrian practice for special situations advisory to institutional investors.
* Our transaction and finance specialists are frequently called upon in the most complex and challenging corporate transactions and financings for companies and financial investors.
* We have one of the leading financial restructuring practices in Germany.
* We have one of the most sophisticated and powerful corporate litigation practices in Germany.
* Our firm maintains one of the most reputable corporate and real estate notary offices in Berlin.

We are proud of the fact that, in recent decades, attorneys from our firm have had the privilege of regularly providing counsel on transactions and trials that have not only shaped German corporate law, but even corporate Germany as we know it today. Our attorneys acted as counsel in the largest-ever German hostile takeover, and were prominently involved in the first contentious takeovers in German and Austrian history. Attorneys from our firm helped establish Germany’s largest utility, and assisted in the financing of what was the largest German private equity deal to date. They have worked on various privatizations, reorganizations, and public offerings of state-owned companies, counseled on the first pre-arranged insolvency plan in Germany and helped securitize corporate law compensation claims for the first time ever. Our attorneys brought the first-ever injunction against illegal corporate integration, and the first-ever corporate law preliminary injunction against a delisting.
