Within: Corporate

Norton Rose Fulbright provides ‘reliable advice’ on corporate governance and compliance matters as well as mergers, reorganisations and charter amendments. The group also recently handled some changes of the legal form from a public limited company (AG) to an SE; for example, Sumitomo Electric Bordnetze was advised on the change of legal form to an SE, which also included handling a dispute concerning the legal status. From Munich, Frankfurt and Hamburg respectively, Klaus Bader, Frank Regelin and Klaus von Gierke lead the practice, which also includes Eva-Maria Barbosa and Andreas Börner, who are recommended for their insurance expertise. A ten-strong team led by Alexander von Bergwelt, Michael Malterer and Igsaan Varachia left the firm in July 2016 to join Dentons, after the firm already saw Sascha Grimm’s departure to an in-house post in May 2016. In February 2017, Patrick Narr and team joined from White & Case LLP. Partner promotions include Katrin Stieß and Peter Holst in May 2016 and Heiko Bertelmann in May 2017.
