Norton Rose LLP, the international legal practice, today announced that Martin Krause is to join as a partner in its Frankfurt office. Martin will join Norton Rose LLP from Linklaters, where he was a partner, also based in Frankfurt.
Martin is specialised in the areas of debt capital markets and structured financial products, securitisation and upstream and downstream work for closed-ended funds. Additionally, Martin is a renowned expert in tax and regulatory matters. He advises a number of high profile investment banks and funds.
Ralf Springer, head of the German banking department, comments:
“This is a great opportunity to strengthen and expand our banking practice in Germany. Martin has a very good name in the market and he is the ideal supplement to our successful capital markets practice in Germany.”
Rüdiger Litten, partner in the Capital Markets group, adds:
“We have known Martin for years and are convinced that he is a perfect fit for our team. Martin is one of very few specialists in the market with great experience of complex debt capital markets products combined with in-depth knowledge of tax and regulatory matters. Our structured financial products and tax teams already advises a large number of major financial institutions, but Martin’s experience will allow us to broaden the practice considerably with a focus on larger projects and new product development work.”
