Andersen team led by Dr. Hermann Knott to strengthen the firm's Cologne office at the turn of 2020/2021

KUNZ continues to expand its range of advisory services: At the turn of the year, Dr. Hermann Knott from Andersen joins the firm's Cologne office as a partner with his team. Hermann Knott has been advising on M&A transactions for many years and is well recognized in the market. He was a co-founder of Luther and Andersen in Germany, has worked abroad several times, is also admitted to the New York Bar, has published numerous professional articles and regularly speaks at international conferences. He has an excellent international network.

"With Hermann Knott, we will expand our expertise," observes the firm's Koblenz partner Dominic Steinborn with pleasure. "Transactions with foreign elements play an increasingly important role for KUNZ. Hermann Knott has many years of expertise from the Andersen environment in integrating legal, tax, and financial advice. His industry expertise is an excellent fit for our setup."

Knott is looking forward to his new position with optimism: "It will be great to contribute and further develope my experience in the dynamic and cooperative environment at KUNZ".

Knott considers efficient forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as international arbitration and mediation, to be a useful complement to transaction advice.

Next to Dr. Knott, the two corporate lawyers Hareth Ghalaini and Dr. Martin Winkler are moving from Andersen to KUNZ and strengthen the competence team "International Business". Thus, KUNZ accompanies your business activities with a foreign element with a team of experts working across the firm’s locations. They combine their demand to provide excellent professional service with their understanding of the underlying economic objectives and other interests of the client.

In the respective foreign jurisdictions, we closely cooperate with first-class local law firms that have been associated with us for many years or that you have already identified in the past.
