Celebrating 10 Years of Service in Germany
A decade ago, the Frankfurt office started out as a real estate capital markets practice, serving a core clientele of German and international funds, asset managers, and institutional investors. While the strong focus on the real estate and fund industry remains, the Frankfurt office is also home to a specialized German and international arbitration practice and a dedicated Life Sciences practice.

Closely integrated into our world-leading international arbitration group, the German team is advising clients in what will be some of the largest investment arbitration proceedings in the energy sector in Europe in the coming years.

The Frankfurt team is also an active player in the life sciences and food & beverage arenas, counseling clients in the healthcare, food, medical devices and pharmaceutical sectors and representing them before German and European courts.

In all these areas, our lawyers are able to handle complex cross-border matters, leveraging King & Spalding’s capabilities within Germany, Europe and across the world.

The 2016/2017 edition of Germany’s JUVE Handbook ranked the team’s performance in investment funds, real estate, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, and food law and awarded a practice area recommendation for dispute resolution.
