DZP has advised Wielton SA, the largest trailer and semi-trailer manufacturer in Poland and one of the three largest in Europe, on its acquisition of 100% of shares in the German Langendorf GmbH, which manufactures trailers, semi-trailers, and special vehicles for transporting glass and other challenging materials. The Langendorf Group was represented by Germany's WMS Treuhand law firm, and Taylor Wessing advised NWR Bank on the deal.

DZP advised Wielton on Polish corporate law and negotiated the transaction documents and coordinated the activity of the German legal adviser, Luther.

According to DZP, "the acquisition of the Langendorf shares will enable Wielton to expand the Group’s offer, increase revenue and enter a highly important market – the German market. In 2015, Wielton took over sector competitors in France and Italy, which strengthened its position as one of the leading European trailer manufacturers."

Partners Klaus Stein and Jurgen Bruns-Coppenrath from WMS Treuhand advised the Langendorf Group.
