Norton Rose Vieregge is continuing its strategy of aggressive expansion in Germany as it takes on two more partners in its Frankfurt office.
Last week, corporate finance partner Erich Michel joined from White & Case Feddersen and banking and capital markets partner Rüdiger Litten joined from Linklaters Oppenhoff & Rädler. Michel handles international M&A, privatisation and equity capital markets, particularly within the IT and telecoms sector. He was responsible for setting up White & Case's Frankfurt office. Litten advises German and foreign banks in connection with structured products and derivatives. The moves come at the end of a string of lateral hires following the firm's merger with the Cologne office of Gaedertz earlier this year. In June, banking regulatory expert Frank Herring and a team of associates joined the firm from Linklaters. And in July, Norton Rose took on a corporate team in Munich and a tax partner in Frankfurt. Herring said: "The recruitment of Michel and Litten is part of our overall strategy which is to grow our corporate finance, banking and capital markets practice in Frankfurt."
