KPMG Law Dresden strengthens positioning of M&A Practice Group

With numerous M&A mandates, the team of KPMG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) headed by Dresden office manager Dr. Matthias Aldejohann has succeeded in consolidating and expanding its position in the regional M&A market in recent months.

Dr. Matthias Aldejohann: “Through the systematic and sustained support of M&A mandates, our office has built up considerable expertise in this field of consulting. With regard to special areas of law such as tax law, subsidy law or antitrust law, we can call in further experts – both nationally and internationally – within hours within the KPMG network. Overall, we expect the number of mandates to increase in the coming years. We will benefit from the fact that KPMG Law will be able to further expand its good position in this dynamic region following the withdrawal of large, internationally active commercial law firms from Dresden.”
