Clifford Chance, Freshfields, Hengeler Mueller advise on VW-Porsche merger

July 28, 2009 Clifford Chance, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Germany's corporate powerhouse Hengeler Mueller have won key roles on the merger of German carmakers Volkswagen AG (VW) and Porsche SE.

Clifford Chance is advising long-standing client Volkswagen, while Freshfields and Hengeler are acting as advisors to Porsche.

Volkswagen AG had agreed to merge with Porsche last week after the departure of the sports-car maker’s CEO Wendelin Wiedeking ended a year-long battle for control of the two car companies.
