Munich, 17.05.2024

GÖRG Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB, led by partner Dr Philipp Grzimek, LL.M., has once again advised Summitas Gruppe GmbH on the acquisition of a company. The company acquired was Seeliger & Co. GmbH, based in Eichenau near Munich. As an independent insurance and financial broker, the company advises private and commercial clients in the areas of insurance, company pension schemes and investments. 

The Summitas Group is a joint venture founded in 2022 by JDC Group AG, Bain Capital Insurance and Canada Life with the aim of creating an integrated insurance broker with a comprehensive range of services. For GÖRG, advising on the acquisition of Seeliger was already the eleventh transaction of the Summitas Group, in which the company relies on the expertise of the lawyers around partner Dr  Philipp Grzimek. 

Lutz Richter, CEO of the Summitas Group, commented: "Thanks to the high quality of its advice, which is geared towards sustainability, Seeliger is an ideal addition to our portfolio - both geographically and in terms of products and customers. The company has built up a strong reputation since 1983, particularly among corporate customers and their employees in the IT and medical technology sectors. Together with the seller and the management, we want to develop the company further and achieve the goals we have set together. As the Summitas Group, we are right on target."

Hans Seeliger, Managing Director of the Seeliger & Co. GmbH, said: "With the Summitas Group, I have found a partner who shares my ideas of values, quality of service and sustainability in dealing and communicating with customers, employees and product partners in all respects. I am looking forward to continuing to support the company's future growth."
