GÖRG strengthens its Frankfurt office with M&A/Private Equity team led by Dr. Tobias Fenck
[Frankfurt, ] GÖRG has been able to gain renowned M&A/Private Equity transaction lawyer Dr. Tobias Fenck. Tobias Fenck will transfer from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, where he most recently headed the Frankfurt office, on 15 September 2018. Together with Dr. Fenck, the two associates Markus Beyer and Robert Schindler will also move to the Frankfurt office of GÖRG.
Dr. Fenck primarily advises in the areas of M&A, Private Equity and Venture Capital. His long-standing clients include funds, medium-sized and owner-managed companies as well as international corporates. In the transaction space, he particularly advises in the mid-cap and small-mid-cap segment. More recently, Dr. Fenck has advised his clients in various service sectors, regulated industries and in the Tech/IT environment.
Dr. Jens-Dietrich Mitzlaff, member of GÖRG’s management team, on the accession of Dr. Fenck and his team: "We are delighted to have gained Tobias Fenck as a high-profile lawyer in the M&A/Private Equity sector. His accession confirms our strategy of combining organic growth with external, strategic partner appointments by means of partner appointments from our own ranks. It also shows the attractiveness of our firm as one of the few remaining German independent law firms. Due to his professional competence and pragmatic personality, Mr. Fenck fits very well into the culture of our firm.”
Dr. Yorick Ruland, head of the Corporate Law Service Line, adds: "With Dr. Fenck joining GÖRG, the firm's M&A/Private Equity/Corporate practice grows to over 70 lawyers. With the three new colleagues, we are expanding our expertise and our capacities in the field of M&A and Private Equity transactions both at the Frankfurt office and throughout the firm.” After Dr. Matthias Menke and Florian Wolff (Frankfurt, 2014), Dr. Marcus Herrmann (Frankfurt, 2016) and Dr. Oliver von Rosenberg (Cologne, 2016), Dr. Tobias Fenck is the fifth partner within the last four years to join in this area.
Dr. Matthias Menke, office managing partner in Frankfurt, adds: "Mr. Fenck and his team, which we will immediately add further associates to, fit perfectly into our strategy of expanding the transaction-driven advisory business in Frankfurt for the firm as a whole.”
Dr. Fenck says: "I am very pleased to be able to contribute my expertise to GÖRG's cross-location team in the future and to support the expansion of the practice. With GÖRG's broad range of advisory services and its anchoring in the German SME market, I will now be able to advise my clients even more comprehensively. The expertise already available in Frankfurt, in particular in the area of M&A/Corporate, Finance, Labor and IP/IT, fits in well with this."
