Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has expanded its German banking team with the appointment of Christoph Enderstein as a partner in its Frankfurt office. Joining on March 10, 2020, Christoph Enderstein will work primarily in the area of debt capital markets (DCM).
Christoph joins Norton Rose Fulbright after several years as a partner at Allen & Overy LLP, where he headed the German DCM team. He has long-standing experience in debt capital markets and structured finance, focusing on advising national and international issuers, public law governed entities and investment banks in connection with international DCM transactions and related regulatory issues. Christoph’s experience covers the issuance, listing and repurchase of bonds and structured securities as well as the establishment and maintenance of a wide variety of debt issuance programs.
Dr. Oliver Sutter, head of the German banking team at Norton Rose Fulbright, commented:
"Germany is an important market for Norton Rose Fulbright and the addition of such an experienced and well-connected colleague strengthens our capital markets practice in a strategic area. After the return of Caroline Herkströter and the arrival of Regina Rath, both prominent banking partners, we are extending our advisory offering."
Dr. Frank Regelin, co-head of the German Corporate, M&A and Securities practice at Norton Rose Fulbright, added:
"We are pleased that Christoph is joining us as a recognized and experienced colleague for our capital markets practice. His in-depth knowledge in bonds and structured finance will further strengthen our existing equity and debt capital markets practice. I am very much looking forward to working with him.”
Dr. Ralf Springer, Head of Germany at Norton Rose Fulbright, said:
"Christoph is an excellent addition to our German practice and to our team. With his vast experience and his outstanding reputation in capital markets law, he will help us to significantly develop this area. This is the fifth addition of a strong partner to our Frankfurt office in the last two years, which once again documents the importance of this location for us in Germany.”
