AC Tischendorf

AC Tischendorf (ACT) is reputed to be one of Germany´s top commercial law firms; it is based in Frankfurt am Main, which is the metropolis of Germany´s financial activity and a hub for Germany´s international business. In peer publications (Legal 500, JUVE, etc.) ACT is listed among the top law firms for its core practices, i.e. corporate, commercial, M&A, restructuring and labour law. The partners were delighted to be invited to become a LAWorld member in January 2013.

ACT is highly regarded not only for its top quality service but also for its fast and programmatic responsiveness, its creativity and the extra-ordinary business sense of its lawyers. Amongst ACT´s ranks there also number many commercially trained lawyers and tax advisors. The firm provides all services expected by commercial companies, investors, entrepreneurs and executives. As a strategic principle, ACT avoids practice areas where its resources would not suffice to deliver best practice services. Instead, it prefers to coordinate and co-operate on the client´s behalf with other leading law firms in such practice areas as public law, media law, anti-trust law and very specific tax matters. ACT does not distinguish between headline deals and day-to-day affairs. Its clients consist of over 400 companies and corporate groups, financial investors, credit institutions, wealthy private clients, shareholders and management – quoted companies and privately owned ones with workforces of 1-400,000 people.

A large proportion of ACT´s work is international and focused on cross-border matters and transactions. Clients prefer ACT to major law firms because it has an excellent reputable track record, it is independent and not least of all, it provides the same service much more reasonably. ACT works as a matter of course in all foreign languages relevant to the commercial world. ACT´s professionals are regular speakers for prestigious seminar organisers on the topics of corporate, commercial, M&A, restructuring and labour law advice and also editors of various specialist books on corporate and employment law, including “Strategies for Successful Acquisitions in Germany”.
