Reed Smith launches in Frankfurt with raid on US rivals

Nearly a year in the offing, Reed Smith has opened its second German office with a bang, hiring a total of seven partners from Mayer Brown; Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe; Willkie Farr & Gallagher; and Jones Day to launch the firm in Frankfurt.

Ten years after first arriving in Germany with an office in Munich, Reed Smith has opened in one of Europe’s largest financial centres with partners in finance, corporate, regulatory, private equity and real estate.
