NEW YORK and FRANKFURT (January 16, 2013) — International law firm McDermott Will & Emery LLP today announced that Andreas Kurtze has joined the Firm as a partner in McDermott’s recently opened Frankfurt, Germany office.
Mr. Kurtze, who joins from another top corporate law firm in Frankfurt, focuses mainly on advising clients in the area of Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) and corporate law, and has headed numerous - mostly cross-border - M&A transactions over the past ten years. In most cases, he represented strategic buyers and has special expertise in a variety of industries including logistics, financial institutions, healthcare and steel.
“We are delighted to add yet another talented and experienced lawyer to our formidable Corporate Advisory team located in Germany’s main financial center,” said David Goldman, partner and head of McDermott’s Corporate Advisory Practice Group. “Andreas has built a very successful practice in both corporate law and M&A transactions in recent years, and we believe that he will be a true asset in helping to grow our Frankfurt office.”
