Norton Rose Fulbright advises Gottfried Friedrichs on acquisition of Stührk food brand

Business April 20, 2016

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has advised Gottfried Friedrichs KG on the acquisition of rights in the brand Stührk from Stührk Delikatessen Import GmbH & Co. KG. The team also advised on insolvency and employment law aspects of the transaction.

Gottfried Friedrichs is a leading European supplier of premium fish delicacies and is considered prominent in sustainable fishing. The owner-managed company based in Hamburg, and with a local heritage of over 100 years, will soon be supplying salmon and caviar products under the name Stührk.

Traditional company Stührk Delikatessen, based in Marne in northern Germany, had encountered economic difficulties within the highly competitive food market. In October 2015, the company filed for insolvency in self-administration with the district court and discontinued business operations.

The Norton Rose Fulbright team was led by partner Alexander Hemmelrath (tax) and of counsel Katharina von der Heyde (corporate/M&A). The team also included Frank Weberndörfer and Wiebke Mattern (both employment law), Sophie Ahrens von Bismarck (insolvency law), Lutz Schreiber and Sebastian Böhme (intellectual property), Heiko Bertelmann and Jörn Grosch (corporate/M&A), Maxim Kleine and Daniel Hagenmaier (antitrust law) as well as Frank Bayer (tax).
