Frank­furt a.M. - Gleiss Lutz part­ners streng­then M&A prac­tice with Dr. Andreas Löhde­fink (photo), previously M&A part­ner at Shear­man & Ster­ling, as part­ner. The exact date of the change has not yet been deter­mi­ned. With the addi­tion of Andreas Löhde­fink, Gleiss Lutz is expan­ding its Finan­cial Insti­tu­ti­ons prac­tice with Dr. Rainer Loges and Dr. Jan Bals­sen, as well as its gene­ral M&A team, follo­wing the part­ner appoint­ment of Dr. Tobias Harzenet­ter (focus: insurance).

Andreas Löhde­fink joined Shear­man & Ster­ling in Frank­furt in 2010, where he became a part­ner in Janu­ary 2014. He has a focus in M&A for finan­cial insti­tu­ti­ons and insu­rance compa­nies and is co-head of Shearman’s global Insu­rance Group. He also advi­ses on gene­ral M&A and on corpo­rate and capi­tal markets law issues. IFLR 1000 names Andreas Löhde­fink as a ‘Highly Regarded Prac­ti­tio­ner’ for Corporate/M&A, JUVE recom­mends him as a lawyer for M&A.

Andreas Löhde­fink on his move: “Of course, the decis­ion is not easy for me, as many profes­sio­nal and perso­nal connec­tions have been made at Shear­man over the years. But Gleiss Lutz’s extra­or­di­nary repu­ta­tion and stra­te­gic focus open up oppor­tu­ni­ties for me to deve­lop my own prac­tice in M&A and in
Finan­cial Insti­tu­ti­ons area to deve­lop further in a great environment.”

Dr. Alex­an­der Schwarz, Co-Mana­­ging Part­ner of Gleiss Lutz, commen­ted: “We are very plea­sed to have gained a renow­ned M&A part­ner in Andreas Löhde­fink. He is an excel­lent fit for our team and will signi­fi­cantly advance our M&A prac­tice with his focus on finan­cial insti­tu­ti­ons, a stra­te­gi­cally promi­sing area.”
