The article presents information related to Frankfurt-based Greenfort which was launched on April 1 to offer medium-sized companies and financial investors an alternative source for obtaining legal advice. Its founders claim that Greenfort will be able to provide advice that is more personal and at the same time reasonably priced. Carsten Angersbach argues that the firm can achieve this because of its size. Greenfort will focus initially on corporate, commercial and corporate finance law advice. All four partners have spent several years advising on cross-border M&A work.
