International law firm Pinsent Masons has hired capital markets partner Dr Susanne Lenz into the firm's Frankfurt office.
As a dual German and US-qualified lawyer, Susanne advises issuers and underwriters on equity and debt capital markets transactions, including high-yield debt issuances. Throughout her career she has advised global and domestic investment banks as well as corporates on a diverse range of mandates, including high-yield bonds, IPOs, private placements, rights issues, block trades, dual listings, convertible bonds and debt issuance programs.
Susanne joins the firm from Hogan Lovells in Frankfurt with senior associate Dušan Stojković, JD.
Pinsent Masons' head of Frankfurt office, Dr Volker Balda, said: "With Susanne Lenz and Dušan Stojković we can expand our Frankfurt office and strengthen our capital markets capabilities. Their versatile practice will incorporate German and US cross-border mandates across a broad remit of ECM and DCM work. Their in-depth knowledge of the legal and cultural aspects of doing business in Germany, the US, the UK, and Asia will be a real asset for Pinsent Masons."
During their time at Hogan Lovells, Susanne and Dušan advised on a number of high profile transactions, such as the IPO of each Shop Apotheke and Vapiano, several issuances of corporate bonds by Katjes International, Shop Apotheke's €50 m capital increase and DIC Asset AG's scrip dividend.
Head of Pinsent Masons' German capital market practice, Thomas Mayrhofer, said: "We are very pleased that Susanne Lenz and Dušan Stojković will strengthen our team at the new Frankfurt office. Our German capital markets transactions all contain a US component and so adding strength and depth with outstanding US legal expertise is crucial. Their arrival will have a significant impact on the work we do with our issuer and investment bank client base."
