The German firm has 'particular strengths in corporate, M&A, real estate and human resources law', according to Eversheds. Dr Matthias Heisse, managing partner of Heiss Kursawe, said: 'Being a part of Eversheds International for so long has given us a very long courtship in which we have got to know each other very well.'
