Goodwin Grows Munich Presence with Private Equity Partner Hire (The Global Legal Post)

Goodwin has added to its Private Equity bench in Germany with the hire of a partner. Winfried Carli joins the recently launched Munich office. His is the latest in a string of PE hires for Goodwin in the UK and Germany that kicked off in September 2020 with the addition of a five-strong team in London. The firm also added a number of partners in Munich ahead of opening the office there in April, among them office chair Dr. Jan Schinköth, who joined the firm in May last year along with an associate. “Our expanding private equity client base in Germany requires sophisticated counsel to execute leveraged buyouts and [Carli] is proven to be one of the very best finance lawyers in the market,” said Schinköth, adding: “We are delighted he will be joining our fast-growing Munich office as we continue to disrupt the Germany private equity space.” Read the The Global Legal Post article here.
