Pinsent Masons bulks up in Munich
Pinsent Masons is adding to its team in Germany by acquiring a four-partner capital markets boutique based in Munich. The firm known as Mayrhofer & Partner includes partners Thomas Mayrhofer, Alexander Thomas, Gudrun Moll and Hans-Ulrich Birkhofer.
The boutique has mainly worked with public companies, specializing in all areas of capital markets. It has worked on high profile deals such as the acquisition of social network XING and the IPO of CashCloud.
The merger is set to take effect on 1 January. It caps a year that saw Pinsent Masons hire Clifford Chance's former IP head Marc Holtorf and former Fieldfisher Munich head Sibylle Schumacher.
