Taylor Wessing has picked up a banking team from the Frankfurt office of King & Wood Mallesons (KWM). The team’s five lawyers include German banking and finance head Sabine Schomaker, along with partner Clemens Niedner and associates Michael Beyer, Ulf Gosejacob, and Jacqueline Urbing.
KWM has also suffered several exits from its London office recently, including investment funds head Michael Halford and finance partner Jonathan Pittal. Proskauer Rose has reportedly hired on former KWM managing partner Rob Day, as well as former finance partner Andrew Wingfield.
