Located in the center of the Frankfurt financial district, the Curtis Frankfurt office provides full transactional practice capabilities with integrated and seamless service for the business needs of our clients in Germany and throughout the world. Established in 1990, the Frankfurt office is involved in cross-border and domestic transactions.
The Frankfurt-based Corporate and Mergers and Acquisitions teams, as part of the firm's global practice in these areas, represent buyers and sellers, strategic and financial investors, and the management of small, mid-size and large companies. We regularly are engaged in both German domestic and multijurisdictional mergers and acquisitions for private and public companies. In addition, our attorneys advise on business set-ups, joint ventures, bankruptcy matters and restructurings, and general corporate law. We offer advice to clients undertaking all types of banking and debt and equity capital markets transactions, including securities offerings and placements, swaps, derivatives, and distressed debt. Frankfurt attorneys who are part of the firm's Investment Management Group advise clients on EU and German investment laws and regulations, including the structuring, documentation, operation, listing and registration of funds. Our experience includes public (including UCITS) and private funds as well as onshore, offshore, open-end and closed-end structures.
Our Real Estate team in Frankfurt has the resources, experience and capabilities to deal with all aspects of complex commercial real estate transactions, both in a German domestic context and international and cross-border contexts. We also offer tax services across the full range of commercial and financial transactions, including strategic advice for structuring, implementing and coordinating cross-border transactions. Our advice encompasses German domestic and international tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions, private equity, investment management, corporate restructurings and real estate.
