The global emphasis on a healthier lifestyle, which is expressed in increased individual sporting activity, fitness and outdoor activities, has also increased significantly in Asia in recent years. As a result, we had the opportunity to advise international investors in the following areas:

Our clients in this segment include companies from the ‘Fragrance and Flavors Industry’, the beverage industry and the confectionery industry in a broader sense. In this respect, we have played a key role in the following transactions:

  • Commitment as an external “in-house counsel” for a world market leader in the field of fragrances and flavors with responsibility for all legal issues of all Asian subsidiaries on a long-term basis
  • Advising a Swiss fragrance and flavor company on entering the Vietnamese market
