Shearman & Sterling’s Munich office, established in 2001, is the Firm’s most recent location in Germany. At present, our Munich based lawyers practice in the areas of taxation, mergers & acquisitions, corporate and finance law. Our office is located in the heart of Munich’s city center at the “Oberanger”.
Unlike most cities in Germany, Munich personifies the combination of archetypal tradition and lifestyle with the heartbeat of dynamic and predominantly high-tech industries. Renowned institutions like the Max-Planck-Institute of Intellectual Property, competition and taxation law, and the European Patent Office and the Federal Fiscal Court are resident here, as well as a multitude of large industrial groups, insurance companies, banks and private equity houses.
Our Tax practice in Munich enjoys an excellent reputation in the German marketplace. The field of activity includes advising large groups, banks and “Mittelstand” companies. The successful finance practice in Munich liaises closely with our offices in Frankfurt and London. Furthermore, the areas of finance and corporate law in the Munich office are elementary components of our entire German practice. Due to the high density in this region of large industrial companies and finance houses, Munich’s key clients are also offered comprehensive legal advice. When servicing the needs of these different industries, a spectrum of integrated legal talent is ensured. Our high profile client base is evidence of our quality legal service, which has placed us among the leading law firms in Munich.
