Thomas Schulz appointed head of Noerr London
Dr Thomas Schulz will take over as the head of German law firm Noerr’s London office from 1 September 2014 succeeding Dr Hans Radau.
Radau, who established and built up the office since its opening in 2010, will return to Munich.
The change also involves an increasing focus for Noerr London on advising financial service providers, funds and companies in the regulated industries.
The office has, since its establishment, contributed considerably to the internationalisation of Noerr’s business. Cross-border M&A transactions and restructurings, investors’ projects (in particular in the BRIC states) and banks, insurance companies, financial service providers and VC investors are all dealt with from the London office.
Going forward the office will focus more strongly on the requirements of financial sponsors and companies from the regulated industries such as energy, media, telecommunication and insurance.
“Private equity houses, hedge and debt funds and financial intermediaries will, in particular, benefit from this new focus,” says Schulz. “Noerr London will also be instrumental in making our market leading offering in restructurings and real estate transactions in Germany available to London market participants.”
The long-time Noerr partner who specialises in PE and M&A transactions on behalf of strategists and financial investors frequently acts in international acquisitions and sales and advises on their financing.
Radau will continue to develop the venture capital business from Munich.
“We thank Hans Radau very much for the successful development of our London office. Due to his commitment, it is today an established address for advice on international transactions” says Dr Alexander Ritvay, co-speaker of the law firm.
