Led by Frankfurt-based partner Prof. Dr. Michael Schlitt, international law firm Hogan Lovells has advised Commerzbank AG on the payment of a scrip dividend and the related rights issue by Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG.

The shareholders' meeting of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG resolved a dividend payment of EUR 0.70 per A share on 20 August 2020.
