Noerr Stiefenhofer Lutz is basking in Oscar glory after advising the production company behind the Oscar winning best foreign language film.
The German firm advised production company Wiedemann & Berg Filmproduktion throughout the production and financing of "Das Leben der Anderen" ("The Lives of Others").
Munich-based media partners Martin Diesbach and Johannes Kreile led the team for longstanding client Wiedemann.
Diesbach told The Lawyer: “This Oscar victory is the perfect example of how a longstanding working relationship with a production company and a law firm can be mutually beneficial. We look forward to working with them for the next production.”
The firm’s relationship with the production company dates back to 2001, when a representative of Widemann, who was attending the Munich Film School where Kreile lectured and continues to do so, contacted the firm.
Diesbach said that since the shooting of the Oscar winning film completed at the end of 2004, the firm had already advised the company on a further three films.
