Deloitte Legal further expands real estate practice in Berlin office
Deloitte Legal's real estate practice significantly strengthened by notable new hires in Berlin.
Once again, Deloitte Legal can announce notable arrivals: As of April 1, 2021, real estate practitioners Carsten Brutschke and Dr. Katja Schwenzfeier have joined Deloitte Legal at its Berlin office through a move from Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH. At the same time, senior associates Markus Horn, Maria Tarassidis and Hagen Brasse will also join Deloitte Legal.
With the additions, Deloitte gains a well-established team that covers the entire spectrum of real estate law and can draw on many years of experience in advising clients on complex real estate transactions. Carsten Brutschke primarily advises international investors and family offices on the acquisition and sale of real estate. In addition to transactional work, Dr. Katja Schwenzfeier specializes in advising on commercial landlord and tenant law, with a particular focus on retail, senior citizen and hotel properties. Her clients include national and international real estate groups as well as project developers.
Dr. Julia Petersen, Head of Deloitte's Berlin office: "We are very pleased that with the team around Carsten Brutschke and Katja Schwenzfeier we have been able to gain an ideal reinforcement for our range of advisory services at the Berlin office and for the further expansion of our real estate practice."
Dr. Katja Schwenzfeier: "We are convinced that our respective experience and strengths complement each other perfectly and that together we will continue to drive Deloitte Legal's growth course - both nationally and internationally."
Thomas Northoff, Managing Partner of Deloitte Legal adds: "The trend towards investments in the German real estate market continues regardless of the current challenges - with our new additions we will be able to meet the market expectations even better, also in Berlin, a location particularly relevant for real estate law."
