Simmons & Simmons has hired Haarmann founding partner Jan Wildberger to bulk up its Frankfurt office.
Wildberger has joined the firm as a partner in its German corporate team advising private equity houses and corporates.
Simmons corporate head Mark Curtis said: “Jan’s hire will be a major step forward for the local private equity practice and our German M&A team generally.
