GÖRG strengthens with private equity team led by Dr. Tobias Fenck
Frankfurt a.M. — With the renowned M&A/Private Equity lawyer Dr. Tobias Fenck (photo ), GÖRG has been able to gain a recognized transaction expert. Tobias Fenck joins the firm on September 15, 2018 from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, where he most recently led the Frankfurt office. Together with Dr. Fenck, the two associates Markus Beyer and Robert Schindler move to the Frankfurt office of GÖRG.
Dr. Fenck advises primarily 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 corporations. In the transaction area, he primarily advises in the mid-cap and small-mid-cap segment. Recently, Dr. Fenck has advised clients in various service sectors, regulated industries, and in the tech/IT environment.
Dr. Jens-Dietrich Mitzlaff from GÖRG’s law firm management on the addition of Dr. Fenck and his team: “We are very pleased to have gained Tobias Fenck, a distinguished lawyer in the field of M&A/private equity. The change confirms our strategy of combining organic growth through annual partner appointments from our own ranks with external, strategic partner appointments. It also demonstrates 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 with the culture of our firm.”
Dr. Yorick Ruland, Head of the Corporate Service Line, adds: “With his joining GÖRG, the firm’s M&A/Private Equity/Corporate practice grows to more than 70 lawyers. With the three new colleagues, we are sustainably expanding our expertise and our capacities for M&A and private equity transactions, both at the Frankfurt office and across the firm.” Following 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 addition in this area within the last four years.
Dr. Matthias Menke, head of the Frankfurt office, added: “Mr. Fenck and his team, to which we will immediately add further associates, fit perfectly into our strategy of expanding the transaction-driven advisory business for the entire firm in Frankfurt.”
Dr. Fenck says: “I am very pleased that I will be able to contribute my expertise to a cross-location team at GÖRG in the future and that I will be able to accompany the expansion of the practice. With the broad range of advice and GÖRG’s anchoring in the German Mittelstand, I will now be able to advise my clients even more comprehensively. The competencies already available in Frankfurt, particularly in the areas of M&A/corporate law, financing, labor law and IP/IT, are a good fit.”
