There are two reasons to celebrate for the corporate team here at KUNZ. In its current Best Lawyers 2021 ranking, Handelsblatt has published not only the "Law Firms of the Year" but also a list of the "Best Lawyers", in which the most frequently recommended lawyers are awarded. With KUNZ partners Dr. Hermann Knott and Dr. Heiko Giermann, two KUNZ lawyers are awarded in the legal field of corporate law.
Dr. Hermann Knott specializes in advising sellers and buyers in M&A transactions, mostly with an international element. His focus is on acquisitions by industrial and financial investors, private equity, joint ventures and corporate restructurings. Another focus of his practice is alternative dispute resolution in the context of corporate disputes, in particular with reference to M&A transactions. In connection with the impact of the pandemic on cross-border disputes, Dr. Hermann Knott has frequently acted as a speaker and panel leader at international virtual conferences on new developments in the field of international arbitration and the growing importance of mediation.
Dr. Heiko Giermann specializes in General Commercial and Corporate/M&A with a focus on clients in national and international trade and logistics. In the area of Corporate/M&A, Dr. Giermann advises clients on medium-sized transactions as well as on disputes between shareholders; in addition, he assists his clients in all matters of corporate housekeeping. In doing so, he benefits from his many years of experience in shareholder and supervisory bodies.
