    The Ashurst team was led by partner Dr Matthias Weissinger. He was assisted by senior associate Franziska Sauer, associate Sascha Lotholz and senior transaction lawyer Ena Selimbegovic (all Global Loans). Dr Matthias Weissinger and his team have already advised Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale on the financing of the acquisition of Löwenstark by funds advised by HANNOVER Finanz GmbH and ARCUS Capital AG last year.

    Ashurst's German banking and finance practice advises both banks and alternative lenders, private equity investors and companies on domestic and cross-border acquisition, real estate, asset and infrastructure / project finance as well as on financial restructuring and corporate lending.
