Organisational developments and personnel changes
At the turn of the year, Noerr is further strengthening its profile by establishing a new practice group and is initiating a transition from one generation to the next by appointing younger practice group heads.
The Corporate/M&A practice group will be split into:
- Stock corporation law advice, which has so far been part of the Capital Markets practice group, will be integrated into the Corporate practice group. The Capital Markets practice will focus on advising on equity and debt capital.
“Through this reorganisation, we will be better reflecting the structures in the market and further strengthening our profile in all three areas,” said co-managing partner Alexander Ritvay. “However, this does not mean that the practices will be separated, on the contrary: the lawyers of these practice groups will continue to work together closely.”
“With this restructuring, we are also initiating a transition from one generation to the next,” added co-managing partner Torsten Fett. “Overall, we are becoming younger with more female colleagues in leading roles.”
- Evelyn Schulz (45) will succeed Fabian Badtke (44) as head of the Healthcare practice group, who will focus on leading the Antitrust & Competition practice group.
- Bärbel Sachs (46) is taking over from Holger Schmitz (59) as head of the Regulatory, Governmental Affairs & Investment Controls practice group.
