Founded as a spin-off of the international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP in 2010, METIS has grown to one of the leading business boutique law firms in Germany. We provide high-end legal advice to our domestic and international clients with a strong focus on Corporate law/M&A, Employment law and Dispute Resolution. Besides acting as permanent legal advisor and “external legal department” to corporates from all industries, we are frequently mandated for complex national and cross-border M&A transactions and complex disputes.

Core areas of our Dispute Resolution practice are general commercial litigation, disputes in financial, capital markets and corporate matters as well as in connection with M&A transactions. We also have extensive experience with respect to the handling of complex claims and liability cases under insurance law (particularly in the area of D&O and other indemnity insurances). We focus on acting for insured companies and directors & officers. In the area of corporate litigation we focus on recissory actions against shareholder resolutions, disputes between shareholders, for example in joint venture structures, and the advice on D&O liability cases.

Advising our clients in disputes with regard to civil law matters, we always also consider criminal law aspects. Even though we do not expressly advise on criminal law, we are well versed with the interfaces between civil law and criminal law.
