McDermott Will & Emery hires new German PE head
McDermott Will & Emery has appointed a new head for its Germany private equity practice, after hiring partner Nikolaus von Jacobs from Ashurst.
Von Jacobs leaves behind a role as head of Ashurst’s German private equity team in Munich.
MWE’s global corporate advisory head David Goldman said the firm was planning to continue its European expansion, and von Jacobs was an “ideal complement” to the firm’s existing German offering.
Von Jacobs added that the firm offered an “excellent international platform”, particularly as US private equity funds showed growing interest in European investment opportunities.
