Addleshaw Goddard continues to grow with two strategic partner hires in Germany: In September 2023, Dr Nina Leonard and Christian Lang will strengthen the corporate/M&A practice in Munich. They join with associate Nikolaus Bernhard from Pinsent Masons.
Nina has over 20 years’ experience in corporate law and M&A. Her practice focuses on cross-border transactions and disputes between shareholders. Nina’s clients include national and international corporations, investors, and entrepreneurs. She has a strong industry focus on life sciences, technology, and energy, in particular on data centres. Nina was one of Pinsent Masons’ founding partners in Germany in 2012 and Head of the Munich office from 2019 until the end of 2022.
Christian also specialises in corporate law and M&A. He advises on transactions, corporate reorganisations, corporate governance and further corporate law issues. His clients include companies, private equity, and venture capital investors as well as consulting firms. Christian’s clients are particularly active in the technology, software, and life sciences sectors.
Dr Michael Leue, Head of Germany at Addleshaw Goddard, comments: "We are delighted to strengthen our transactional practice with Nina and Christian. Together with our cross-divisional team in Germany and in our international offices, they will support our clients in their growth and digitalisation strategies. We warmly welcome them to the team at Addleshaw Goddard."
"For my clients, a global law firm that stands for high-quality service, a strong industry focus and innovative solutions is essential. For complex, cross-border transactions, Addleshaw Goddard offers the perfect framework," says Dr Nina Leonard. "I am delighted to bring my experience and expertise to such an exciting environment."
"Addleshaw Goddard is one of the aspiring addresses, especially in the German market," adds Christian Lang. "I am looking forward to strengthening the team together with Nina and to collaborating with colleagues across all offices."
Addleshaw Goddard is continuously strengthening its presence in Germany since opening its offices in Frankfurt and Munich. This year, the firm has already been joined by partners Kristina Baurschmidt in real estate law in Berlin and Hamburg and Marco Zingler in bank regulatory law in Frankfurt. Further growth in Germany is expected.
