[Frankfurt am Main, ] The highly respected M&A partner and corporate law expert, Dr. Marcus Herrmann, becomes a partner at the Frankfurt office of GÖRG on 1 September 2016.
Dr. Herrmann has many years' experience managing transactions for national and international corporate acquisitions, joint ventures and restructuring operations. His industry expertise includes clients in the fields of automotive, manufacturing, technology, life sciences and financial services.
Before moving to Morgan Lewis in 2012, Dr. Hermann was a founding partner of the Frankfurt offices of Latham & Watkins, where he worked for over ten years.
Dr. Hermann is looking forward to an interesting range of tasks in association with his move. "GÖRG has ambitious plans in relation to the expansion of the Frankfurt office and its national M&A practice," he comments. "Here I can bring my experience to bear. The excellent reputation enjoyed by GÖRG's restructuring practice is also very attractive to industry clients and financial investors."
The manager of the Frankfurt office, Dr. Roland Hoffmann-Theinert, is also convinced of the complementary benefits of the move: "Dr. Marcus Herrmann will significantly strengthen our M&A and Corporate Law team," he says. "This is one of the core fields for our firm and we are delighted that Mr. Herrmann is bringing his vast experience in transactions and his industry expertise to the team in Frankfurt, and more broadly to our whole German team."
The GÖRG Frankfurt office was expanded only recently with the appointment of corporate partners Dr. Matthias Menke, Florian Wolff and their team, who came from Graf von Westphalen. Since Hoffmann-Theinert took over management of the office, the firm has always made it clear that it intends to grow its skills further in the classic Corporate field at Frankfurt.
As long ago as 2014, Dr. Herrmann's former colleague, Dr. Jens-Dietrich Mitzlaff, moved from Morgan Lewis to GÖRG's Frankfurt office. Together with Dr. Mark Kersting, he is responsible for the Banking and Finance field there, specialising in credit financing and the restructuring of ailing property loans.
It is a declared goal of GÖRG to undertake further sustainable strengthening of the Frankfurt office. In the next two years, it plans to expand the current team of 30 professionals to more than 40.
