The international law firm Bryan Cave LLP has expanded in Germany with the addition of Dr Hubertus Schröder and Tonio Sadoni – two lawyers who will practise in the areas of corporate and M&A.

Schröder, 38, joins the team as counsel. For many years, he has been advising on all aspects of corporate/M&A matters and in distressed situations. He has extensive experience in domestic and cross-border M&A, corporate structuring, carve-outs and joint ventures. His experience also covers the trading and financing of non-performing loans.

His clients include German and international corporations, private equity investors and financial institutions. Schröder comes to Bryan Cave from Gibson Dunn in Munich. He also has practised as a lawyer at Ashurst in London and Munich.

Sadoni (pictured), 35, joins Bryan Cave’s Hamburg office as an associate. He advises on national and international transactions, corporate matters and general commercial law. He specialises in joint ventures and private equity. He has represented clients in a number of industries, with a particular focus on the life sciences/healthcare sector, nutrition industry and hotel business.

Before joining Bryan Cave, Sadoni worked in the Hamburg corporate department of Latham & Watkins.

‘Bryan Cave is on a growth path in Germany,’ said Hamburg office managing partner Eckart Budelmann.

‘With Dr Hubertus Schröder and Tonio Sadoni, we gain two very experienced experts in advising on international transactions. The German market is very attractive to foreign investors. Additionally, a lot of German companies focus on expanding to other countries. In this regard we advise complex business acquisitions and sales.’
