Noerr strengthens its private equity and venture capital practice with Dominik Rompza
A prominent addition is strengthening Noerr’s Private Equity & Venture Capital practice group: Dominik Rompza joined its Berlin office as an Associated Partner on 1 August. Dominik Rompza has come to Noerr from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
Dominik Rompza specialises in advising venture capital companies and private equity investors over the entire life cycles of their investments. He is regularly also involved in high-volume international M&A transactions. At Noerr he will be strengthening the distinguished Private Equity & Venture Capital practice group with the Berlin corporate partners Felix Blobel, Sascha Leske and Christian Pleister.
“Noerr has recently been able to clearly expand its market presence and therefore further consolidate its position amongst the top firms for private equity/venture capital companies and strategic investors. Together with Dominik Rompza we will in particular further intensify our advice services in the areas of private equity, growth capital, TMT and e-commerce transactions, as well as listed companies,” says Dr. Georg Schneider, Head of the Private Equity & Venture Capital Group.
Noerr’s Private Equity & Venture Capital practice group advises growth companies and market leaders such as Zalando, Rocket Internet, HelloFresh, Foodpanda, Jimdo and Global Fashion Group, as well as investors such as Oakley Capital, Deutsche Telekom/T-Ventures or most recently Scottish Equity Partners. “Noerr has an impressive track record in private equity transactions and in the area of growth capital. I am therefore very much looking forward to working with my new colleagues. Together we will continue this success story,” commented Dominik Rompza on his move.
Noerr is one of the leading firms for private equity and venture capital and has also in recent months advised clients on a series of significant transactions, including the private equity investor American Industrial Partners on the acquisition of a business division of the US company Anixter (transaction volume of US$ 380m), the leading venture capital company Scottish Equity Partners on its investments in the German growth companies Babbel and Mister Spex, the online hearing aid distributor audibene on its sale to Sivantos/EQT, the Apollo joint venture Alteri on the takeover of the mail order group Walz and on the refinancing of the Basler Fashion group, as well as Rocket Internet on its investment of approximately 500 million euros in Delivery Hero.
