New York firm Sullivan & Cromwell has succeeded in prising the Goldman Sachs relationship partner from the Frankfurt office of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
Leading corporate specialist Wolfgang Feuring will join Sullivans' Frankfurt office, where he will focus on M&A and capital markets. The move is a coup for Sullivans, as it seals the firm's relationship in Germany with its key client. Feuring will become Sullivans' first German partner and only the firm's fourth lateral hire at partner level, following the recruitment to the Paris office last November of Richard Vilanova from Stibbe Simont Monahan Duhot and, earlier this year, Jeantet & Associés' two senior partners Gerard Mazet and Jean-Pierre Le Gall.
