    Maximilian joins the global legal practice’s Dusseldorf office today (1 October 2018). He was previously at MKRG Mütze Korsch, and has worked for Hogan Lovells and Hengeler Mueller.

    Specialising in corporate/M&A and company law including corporate compliance, his clients include national and international financial investors, industrial companies and private clients. He is also highly experienced in capital market transactions including initial public offerings, capital increases or private placements.

    Maximilian has advised on highly complex and innovative transactions for over ten years. He has a particular focus on asset deals and share deals, both on the purchasers' as well as on the sellers' sides, and joint ventures. Owing to his broad transactional experience, he has also gained significant expertise in the energy and real estate sectors.

    "Within a very short period, Eversheds Sutherland has significantly strengthened its market profile and has achieved impressive growth. Specifically, the firm's international position with offices in 32 countries globally as well as its renowned industry expertise, form an excellent platform upon which I can further develop my business. I am excited to join the Dusseldorf office and to contribute to the firm's dynamic development in Germany."

    The German corporate/M&A team consists of approximately 30 lawyers, including nine partners, and advises on complex cross-border matters.
