Norton Rose has hired SJ Berwin’s German capital markets chief Frank Regelin.

Regelin, who joins Norton Rose as a partner in the Frankfurt corporate finance department, will take associate Sascha Grimm with him to Norton Rose.

Regelin’s practice will focus on equity capital markets, advising both issuers and banks in capital markets transactions. His client base includes investment bank Equinet.

On his decision to move to Norton Rose, Regelin said the firm’s corporate finance team had seen strong growth in the Frankfurt market while the practice’s tightly integrated international network was a big draw.

“I am convinced that Norton Rose’s close ties to banks will be a strong boost for the development of my business,” said Regelin.

Frankfurt partner Nico Abel said: “Frank’s strong focus on equity capital markets closes a gap and perfectly complements our offering to our clients in Germany. With this and his existing client base he will be another step in our strategy to consistently grow our corporate finance practice in Germany.”
