BLP hires real estate team from Orrick in Berlin
Berwin Leighton Paisner have hired a team of six lawyers from Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe in Berlin. The team includes two partners, Norbert Impelmann and Albrecht von Breitenbuch, and will join BLP on 1 October.
Orrick made the decision earlier this year to shut down its presence in Berlin and Frankfurt. Impelmann and Breitenbuch made up two of three partners at Orrick's Berlin office before the recent hiring.
The team from Orrick practice real estate and infrastructure. They advise institutional investors, property owners, family offices and financial institutions on real estate investments.
It is yet unknown where the third partner in Orrick's Berlin office, Wolfram Krohn, will land.
