NEW YORK AND DÜSSELDORF (January 10, 2013) — McDermott Will & Emery LLP today announced that Dr. Matthias Kampshoff has joined the Firm as a partner based in its Düsseldorf office. Dr. Kampshoff will provide McDermott’s Restructuring & Insolvency practice with extensive experience in German bankruptcy law, particularly as it relates to insolvent companies, their officers, shareholders, investors as well as bankruptcy administrators and creditors.
Dr. Kampshoff, formerly a partner and Practice Area head at another international law firm, counsels clients on all corporate and bankruptcy-law related issues, and specializes in the energy, pharmaceutical and automotive sectors. In particular, he helps guide companies in their self-administration and regularly advises on national and international distressed M&A transactions.
“We are delighted to welcome Matthias to McDermott,” said Timothy Walsh, partner and international head of the Firm’s Restructuring & Insolvency practice. “As demand for restructuring services grows, we are adding top-notch talent in many of our offices around the world. We are working to make McDermott one of the world’s leading restructuring firms and the addition of Matthias is a key part of this strategy.” Walsh added that McDermott has a strong bench of 47 restructuring lawyers throughout the world, with six now located in Germany.
"Dr. Matthias Kampshoff is a renowned M&A and restructuring attorney who will further strengthen our esteemed and successful restructuring practice together with Dr. Uwe Goetker and will further increase our clout in the areas of both restructuring and M&A. With this step, we are continuing to implement our international growth strategy for both the restructuring and M&A areas in Germany. We have concrete plans for additional growth," says Dr. Norbert Schulte, partner and partner-in-charge of McDermott’s Düsseldorf office.
