    Hengeler Mueller's India desk, founded in 2005, is mad eup of German lawyers with experience in India and an Indian background as well as Indian lawyers who have been trained internationally. Well-known corporate governance lawyer Klaus-Dieter Stephan leads the firm's nine-member team, which counsels both German and Indian clients on deals in each other's jurisdictions, as well as assisting Indian companies with compliance work, contracts and setting up a corporate structure in Germany. In the past year, the team acted for KPS Capital Partners on the acquisition of Foundation Brake' business from the Bsoch in India, and it's currently being instructed by several Indian companies looking for acquisitions in Germany.
