    Conrad joins from Hengeler Mueller and specialises in advising national and international financial services providers, fund managers, institutional investors and banks. Conrad’s practice focuses on investment and banking regulatory law including anti-money laundering, outsourcing, distribution as well as advising on post-Brexit strategies in the asset management and financial sector.   

    Detmar Loff, head of financial regulatory in Germany said: 

    "We look forward to welcoming Conrad to the firm and we are delighted that he is joining us. He is highly regarded for his deep asset management industry knowledge, and he will ideally complement our global team also in the growing areas of financial market regulation, including FinTech, RegTech and ESG." 

    Jake Green, global co-head of financial regulatory added:

    "Financial regulation is an area of critical importance to the firm and our global financial institution clients. Ashurst has an exceptionally strong practice across the world's key financial centres and Conrad will be a great addition to our team. He will be key to supporting our global clients as they continue to expand their presence in Continental Europe following Brexit, and his strong track record in advising US, UK and European asset managers and financial firms on their Brexit strategy will be invaluable. Conrad's appointment builds on our investment in specialist regulatory teams across our platform, including the appointment of Etay Katz and promotion of Lorraine Johnston, and reinforces Ashurst's status as global leader in financial services."

    Conrad said:

    "Ashurst has a world-class regulatory practice and is the ideal platform to provide excellent advice to financial market participants in a highly dynamic and innovative environment. I am very much looking forward to becoming part of the great Ashurst team and to further strengthening the leading role of the regulatory practice in Germany and Europe."
