Since June 1, Dr. Julia Petersen heads Deloitte Legal’s Berlin team of lawyers
On June 1, 2016, transaction specialist Dr. Julia Petersen has joined Deloitte Legal in Berlin where she will head the firm’s team of lawyers, thereby contributing to Deloitte Legal’s continued path of expansion. Julia specializes in rendering corporate and commercial law advice to German and international clients, with a focus on national and international M&A transactions, joint ventures, corporate restructurings as well as real estate deals. Prior to joining Deloitte Legal, Julia Petersen worked at lindenpartners, where she in particular advised various clients on mid-market M&A transactions as well as investors and residential companies on large real estate transactions. Before that, she acted as head of Luther’s “Corporate/M&A East Germany” section.
"Deloitte Legal offers an excellent framework for Julia Petersen’s expertise," explains Thomas Northoff, Co-Managing Partner at Deloitte Legal. "Julia brings along many years of experience of working in a multidisciplinary environment, both in a domestic as well as an international setting". Torsten Bloch, Managing Partner of Deloitte Legal’s Berlin office, adds: "We are very happy that we have won such an experienced colleague and proven expert for transactional and corporate law for our firm and our Berlin office. With Julia taking the lead of our Berlin team of lawyers we will not only continue our path of expansion - this recent addition to our team will also enable me to put a stronger emphasis on developing my practice as notary public, which is focused on real estate and corporate law matters."
