P+P has been recommended in each of its core practice areas with two leading lawyers and 10 partners in total, some of whom are recommended in more than one practice area:

In private equity, P+P is considered "absolutely outstanding" for fund formation and transactions. Andreas Rodin and Patricia Volhard are named "leading lawyers" for their fund formation practice. Andreas Rodin is "extremely skilled" and Munich partner Matthias Bruse "attracts interesting deals".

P+P has an "excellent tax practice",  in particular as related to private equity and fund structuring matters. Andreas Rodin is again a "recommended" tax expert, along with Reinhard Pöllath.

The renowned private equity and tax practices also underpin the corporate and M&A sector, for which Andrea von Drygalski and Otto Haberstock were especially mentioned as "recommended" lawyers.

In real estate transactions, the team contains "numerous excellent lawyers" and all four partners in this practice area are recommended for their expertise: Munich partner Wolfram Pätzold, as well as his Berlin colleagues Stefan Lebek, Carsten Führling and Matthias Durst.
