International law firm Addleshaw Goddard continues its expansion in Germany with a significant lateral partner hire. In April, Marco Zingler will be joining the firm’s banking and finance practice from EY Law, further strengthening its regulatory service offering in Frankfurt.

Marco has extensive experience in bank regulatory and investment law. He advises national and international banks, payment service providers, securities and financial services institutions as well as capital management and investment companies on regulatory law. Furthermore, his practice involves advising investors and depositaries as well as investment fund structuring. Marco is also well placed to provide support on restructurings as well as infrastructure, real estate and M&A transactions of regulated companies and on ESG issues. Marco lectures on German bank regulatory law at University for Continuing Education Krems in Austria and co-authors various investment law commentaries.

Dr. Michael Leue, Head of Germany at Addleshaw Goddard, commented: “We are delighted that Marco has chosen to join Addleshaw Goddard. This is an important step towards building a competitive offering for our full-service finance capabilities, in Germany and internationally. As a proven expert in banking, regulatory and investment law, Marco perfectly complements the portfolio of the firm’s banking and finance team around Nadine Bourgeois.”

“We are delighted to welcome Marco to the team and, together with him, continue the strategic client-led expansion of our practice in Germany,” added Nadine Bourgeois, who has been steadily building the practice since 2021.

“Full-service advice across jurisdictions is essential to my clients' success. Addleshaw Goddard offers an excellent framework with its cross-border service offering as well as its deep industry expertise," said Marco Zingler. "I look forward to playing my part in the firm's continued expansion and to working with our outstanding team both internationally and regionally.“

Addleshaw Goddard has continued expanding into European markets important to clients, opening offices in Dublin and Luxembourg, as well as strengthening its presence in Germany with the opening of two offices in Frankfurt and Munich last year. Most recently, Counsel Nikolos Tsagareli joined the banking and finance team in Frankfurt. Further growth in Germany is expected.
