Noerr has advised the shareholders of the malt producer Tivoli Malz, Hamburg, on the sale of its Global Malt division to England's Anglia Maltings Group — a long-term cooperation partner of Global Malt. Charles Russell Speechlys worked alongside Noerr and advised the sellers on matters of English law, while Stephenson Harwood (on matters of English law) and Heuking, Kuhn, Luer, Wojtek (on German law) advised the buyers. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price or any other details of the transaction.
In its six plants in Germany and one plant in Poland Global Malt produces approximately 400,000 tons of brewing malt per year and exports worldwide. The Hamburg plant is the Group’s largest.
