Lovells German head relinquishes role after 18 months

Lovells managing partner for Germany Oliver Felsenstein is stepping down from the role after just a year and a half in the job.

Felsenstein said his decision was prompted by a desire to undertake more client work, adding: “I am a victim of the success of our private equity practice.”

The German partner is also the firm’s co-head of corporate alongside London partner Hugh Nineham and will continue in that role.

Lovells is expected to appoint a successor on 1 April.
