BEITEN BURKHARDT Further Strengthens Frankfurt Office with Lateral Hiring

Frankfurt am Main, 9 May 2017 – The international law firm BEITEN BURKHARDT strengthens its corporate law competencies in connection with tax law and real estate law with its new Equity Partner Volker Szpak for the Frankfurt office. Mr Szpak, founding partner of Hauck Schuchardt, will join BEITEN BURKHARDT as early as mid-May 2017, together with Associate Petra Bolle.

As lawyer and tax advisor, 54-year-old Volker Szpak has many years of experience in corporate and tax law, in particular real estate law. His key areas are the tax and legal structuring of asset and share deals, as well as classic corporate law and M&A transactions.

Frank Obermann, Managing Partner at BEITEN BURKHARDT, comments, "We have looked specifically for an experienced partner specialising in the real estate sector for our Frankfurt office, and we are pleased to have found such a competent colleague with Volker Szpak. Mr Szpak's personality and expertise fit perfectly with BEITEN BURKHARDT."

Dr Detlef Koch, head of the law firm's Frankfurt office, adds, "The real estate industry plays a major role in Frankfurt city and is under constant change. We are therefore very glad to welcome another highly experienced team specialising on real estate consulting, shortly after Dr Daniel Fischer joined us in April this year."

"The two additions account for a constantly increasing demand of real estate consulting in all its aspects. Our continued expansion is thus a logical step forward, conveying a clear message to the market," comments Klaus Beine, head of the real estate law practice group.
