Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has strengthened its investment and banking regulatory practice in Frankfurt with the hire of counsel Dr. Ute Brunner-Reumann. Ute joins from DekaBank Deutsche Girozentrale. With experience in banking regulatory and capital markets law, Ute joins the team led by partner Dr Caroline Herkströter.
Dr. Ute Brunner-Reumann was head of the supervisory law group at DekaBank Deutsche Girozentrale and provided legal support for DekaBank in its function as a systemically important credit institution and depositary for investment funds.
Norton Rose Fulbright's German banking and finance practice is one of the leading advisory practices in acquisition and loan finance, asset and project finance and regulatory advice to funds and asset management.
Dr. Oliver Sutter, head of Norton Rose Fulbright's German banking and finance practice, commented:
"With Dr. Ute Brunner-Reumann, we are gaining a lawyer with a wealth of experience in regulatory law who will once again significantly strengthen our team in Frankfurt.”
Dr. Caroline Herkströter adds:
"Ute brings valuable experience, especially in the area of CRR, global custody, clearing and settlement, as well as the upcoming topics of digitalisation, which are increasingly shaping international banking and payment transactions."
Dr. Ute Brunner-Reumann commented:
"I am looking forward to returning to the advisory practice of a major international law firm after a highly exciting time at DekaBank, where I will be able to work with Dr Caroline Herkströter again. From a regulatory perspective, there are many exciting challenges arising from the new regulatory requirements, for example in the growing market of ESG products and due to Brexit. In addition, I am looking forward to advising on the structuring of transactions again.”
