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.”
