Latham expands German M&A practice with Freshfields hire
Latham & Watkins has hired corporate partner Tobias Larisch from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. He will join the firm’s Düsseldorf branch.
Larisch joined Freshfields as a partner in 2012 upon completion of a secondment at Deutsche Bank.
Larisch’s hire represents the continuation of Latham’s steady strengthening of its German M&A practice, having now hired corporate partners from three magic circle firms since 2015. These hires include Oliver Felstenstein and Burc Hesse from Clifford Chance, and Nikolaos Paschos and private equity partner Rainer Traugott from Linklaters.
