Allen & Overy further expands its private equity practice in Germany


​Allen & Overy LLP has boosted its German private equity practice with the appointment of leading private equity specialist Dominik Stühler, who will join the Munich office of the firm as a partner.  Dominik will join the firm from DLA Piper, where he was part of the team that has successfully built the private equity group in a short period of time.   

Dominik Stühler’s appointment follows that of Michiel Huizinga who joined A&O’s Frankfurt office in March this year.
"Dominik joining us will significantly strengthen the market presence of our private equity practice in Munich and marks an important step towards developing the practice as a whole, to become one of the leading practices in the German market," says Thomas Ubber, Senior Partner of Allen & Overy Germany. 
And Dr Hans Schoneweg, head of the German Corporate M&A practice, adds: "For many financial investors, Germany is the most important target market for the coming years, which is why we expect a continued surge in private equity transactions.  Thanks to a strong private equity practice that maintains excellent international connections and forms an integral part of our recognised Corporate M&A group, we are very well positioned in this sector.  Our clients, and in particular our private equity and M&A clients, will benefit from our new hire."
Dominik Stühler has a particular focus on national and cross-border private equity deals, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings and real estate transactions, with more than 15 years of experience.  He studied law in Regensburg and Munich and additionally obtained a graduate degree in business administration and an M.B.A.
"I am very much looking forward to becoming part of Allen & Overy's global private equity team.  Its global top-tier transactional practice, in particular in private equity, M&A, high yield, funds, restructuring and real estate, offers international private equity sponsors a very attractive platform for large-scale, complex transactions," emphasises Dominik.
Dominik's private equity clients in recent years have included Partners Group, EQT, Fortress, Summit Partners, Orlando Management, HIG, Sun Capital, Blackstone  and Cathay Capital.
