FGvW Strengthens Corporate Practice and Notary's Office in Frankfurt with Annette Bödeker

With Annette Bödeker, we are gaining a proven corporate/M&A expert and notary as a new partner. This also strengthens our notary's office in Frankfurt, which was newly established in April 2020 with the transfer of Christoph Börskens.

Annette Bödeker will move from Arnold & Porter on March 1, 2021, where she was a partner at the firm's sole German office and responsible for the firm's corporate/M&A business. She started her career at Hengeler Mueller, then moved to Linklaters, where she was a partner in the corporate department for several years. Annette Bödeker also has many years of experience at U.S. law firms, having first joined Orrick in 2009 and Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer in 2012. In addition to providing corporate law advice to large, international companies and banks, her practice focuses on serving Mittelstand companies. As a partner at Arnold & Porter, Annette Bödeker also advised on transactions from the Arnold & Porter network, where she regularly worked closely with colleagues from London and the US.

"Our Frankfurt am Main office has received a considerable boost in recent months - we are consistently continuing on this path," explains Managing Partner Barbara Mayer. "We are pleased that with Annette Bödeker we have gained another renowned and professionally excellent reinforcement in the Corporate/M&A area. After having expanded the Frankfurt office in recent years, especially in real estate law, labor law, IP and the notary's office, we will now also continue to grow in the transactional area," adds Managing Partner Carsten Laschet.

FGvW's corporate practice is strongly represented throughout Germany. In cross-office cooperation, we have built up expertise in all matters of corporate law - company formations, reorganization of group structures, preparation of shareholders' meetings and annual general meetings, corporate finance issues. This also includes advising investors on the takeover of listed companies, the classic M&A business and advising on joint ventures in Germany and abroad.

"Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner is a leading German law firm with an excellent reputation and strong international orientation," commented Annette Bödeker on her decision to join FGvW. " I have known FGvW's long-standing clients from the pharmaceutical and medical technology sectors previously as clients of Arnold & Porter. With FGvW's Berlin office, the firm also has proven experts in technology and venture capital transactions. FGvW is thus the ideal platform for my strongly internationally oriented business."
