Dr. Sven Greulich, partner at Orrick's Düsseldorf office, is a technology lawyer specializing in complex cross-border mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investments and general corporate counseling.

Sven advises technology companies on complex cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and private equity and venture capital investments, and provides general corporate counseling.

His clients include technology companies of all stages and their investors at all points in the company life cycle. Supported by a global and cross-practice team, he also counsels major corporations on their European expansion projects.

Sven is passionate about building a bridge for his clients from Germany to Silicon Valley and other global technology hubs, to help them succeed in the international market. With a dual background in business and law, an entrepreneurial spirit, and experience in over 100 M&A transactions and financing rounds across many industries (including energy, automotive, information technology, commerce and life science), Sven has a unique perspective, which inspires him to find the best strategic and commercially viable solution for his clients.

Sven volunteers with entrepreneur groups (such as Prepare! The Entrepreneurs Academy or the WHU Entrepreneurship Roundtable) and lectures at the WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management.

In the 2017 edition of its Innovative Lawyers Report Europe, the Financial Times named Sven’s work to connect start-ups with Germany’s Mittelstand (mid-sized companies) a standout "for making bridges between Silicon Valley and Germany". In 2017 and 2018, he also received the "Acritas Star Lawyer" award from the leading international legal research company Acritas based on clients' praise for Sven's responsiveness and business-oriented advice. The Legal500 Ranking EMEA for 2018 recommends Sven for "mid-sized international Corporate M&A deals (€100m-€500m)".
