Wolf Theiss, Hasche Sigle see through FutureLAB sale

Wolf Theiss was instructed by longstanding client FutureLAB, with partner Dieter Spranz leading.

The firm has advised the medical diagnostic ­company since it launched in 2003.

Hasche Sigle partner Udo Simmat led a team advising BC Partners.

The FutureLAB deal came just as the private equity group acquired a 40 per cent stake in Synlab in Germany.

Spranz said: “We’ve been working very closely with FutureLAB since 2003. It started up as a joint venture and we’ve advised them on over 40 acquisitions since then.”

Simmat has advised BC Partners for more than 20 years. For the Synlab and FutureLAB deals he assembled a team of more than 30 lawyers in Germany.
