Freshfields caters to investors with bespoke group

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has launched a bespoke financial investors group comprised of around 100 partners and over 200 associates worldwide.

Led by Cologne-based Ludwig Leyendecker and London corporate partner David Higgins, the new group will offer global financial investors an integrated offering spanning across private equity, infrastructure funds, sovereign wealth funds and alternative capital providers.

According to Leyendecker, the firm is launching the new service in response to global financial investors converging their investment strategies and diversifying their investment portfolios by operating on a global basis.

“It’s essential that we adapt our own offering to match even more closely their need for cutting edge expertise on what are typically ground-breaking and business-critical mandates,” said Leyendecker.
