Munich: Deloitte Legal strengthens M&A team

Transactional lawyer Eike Fietz (53) has joined Deloitte Legal as a partner as of October 1, 2021 and strengthens the existing Munich Corporate/M&A team around partner Dr. Michael Fischer.

With Eike Fietz, Deloitte Legal gains an experienced specialist for Mergers & Acquisitions in Munich and, with his entry, drives the further development of the automotive practice. Eike Fietz has been working in the field of M&A and corporate law for more than 20 years. He focuses on transaction-related advice to international strategic investors and German mid-sized companies in the automotive, mechanical engineering and IT sectors. Prior to joining Deloitte Legal, he was a corporate and M&A partner at Pinsent Masons for almost nine years, where he most recently coordinated the German industry-team for manufacturing industries and automotive. Furthermore, Eike Fietz worked for one of the world's leading automotive suppliers in the legal department's team specializing in driver assistance systems and autonomous driving.

For Eike Fietz, Deloitte's holistic approach is important: "The excellent international network as well as the industry-focused, interdisciplinary consulting approach distinguish Deloitte Legal and Deloitte as a whole. Both are absolutely essential for advising medium-sized and large industrial and technology companies. In particular, the automotive industry with its multifaceted and complex challenges can be advised much more efficiently and better with this setup.”

Thomas Northoff, Managing Partner Deloitte Legal, adds: "I am firmly convinced that Eike Fietz, embedded in Deloitte's platform, can create real added value for our quality-conscious clients and that together we can further strengthen Deloitte Legal's national and international growth in a sustainable manner."

Michael von Rüden, Head of M&A at Deloitte Legal adds: "At Deloitte Legal, Eike Fietz joins an M&A team with many years of advisory and transactional experience on a national and international level. His advisory services also fit seamlessly into the spectrum of M&A-related services offered by the other Deloitte functions, such as corporate finance advisory, valuation & modeling, M&A transaction services and transaction-related tax advisory. We are pleased that Eike Fietz will become part of our team."
