Allen & Overy appoints four new counsel in Germany
01 November 2022
Nadine Kämper (Frankfurt) advises clients on equity and debt capital markets transactions, in particular initial public offerings, capital increases, private placements and rights offerings, as well as high-yield bond offerings and convertible and exchangeable bonds. She will use her substantial capital market expertise to expand advisory services to issuers while further strengthening the firm's established position as adviser to issuing banks and thus to meet the medium- to long-term growth in demand for such advisory services from corporates, investors and intermediaries. Nadine Kämper has been working for Allen & Overy since 2015.
Dorothée Kupiek, LL.M. (Düsseldorf) regularly advises major corporates, including numerous DAX and MDAX-listed companies, on a wide range of issues relating to corporate and capital markets law. She also supports clients in the context of public and private M&A transactions, often involving cross border deals and in some cases in extremely complex situations, such as fending off hostile takeovers. She will build on existing client relations, in terms of both depth and scope, while also acquiring new clients in the market. Dorothée Kupiek joined the firm in 2013.
Dr Ioannis Thanos (Hamburg) is an acknowledged expert in international merger control who specialises in advising on complex, cross border deals. In him, the firm can offer a specialist able to navigate clients quickly and reliably through the multitude of merger control regulations, which have increased substantially in recent years. His advisory services are tailored both to major corporates and private equity investors requiring maximum transaction security in the context of M&As while controlling regulatory risks. Ioannis Thanos has been part of the Allen & Overy team since 2016.
Dr Hauke Sattler (Hamburg) has an impressive track record in advising on restructuring and insolvency law and his move to Allen & Overy gives the established Restructuring team additional impetus. He specialises in advising companies, managers and investors in economically difficult situations, which are being experienced by many at present due to the multiple crises triggered by limited energy resources, ongoing supply chain problems, inflation and the transformation of business models triggered by technological developments. Hauke Sattler has many years of experience in restructurings and insolvencies across a wide variety of sectors, and has developed a particular specialism in the automotive industry over this time. His experience in the field of restructuring trusteeships also represents a valuable addition to the portfolio of advice offered by our Restructuring practice. He previously worked for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
"On behalf of the entire firm, I warmly congratulate our new counsels on achieving this milestone in their careers. With their expertise and creative energy, we are further strengthening our German practice and taking another step on our path of strategic growth," commented Dr Wolf Bussian, Managing Partner at Allen & Overy Germany. He added: "The gender equality in the counsel appointments reinforces our sustained efforts in the field of diversity, which we intend to maintain in the future."
In appointing them counsel, Allen & Overy acknowledges and promotes lawyers who have made their mark on the legal stage and combine outstanding legal skills with an ability to make first class judgements and have displayed exceptional commitment to the firm's clients.
