KWM is growing further – Peter Polke joins the team as Counsel

King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) gains Dr. Peter Polke as Counsel thus strengthening its M&A and private equity practice and continuing the successful growth of the past three years.

Mr. Polke will join KWM at the beginning of April. He complements the team that regularly advises private equity investors, companies and entrepreneurs on complex transactions in the European market. 

Rüdiger Knopf (Partner in Charge for Germany / Partner, Tax) comments: “Peter Polke will strengthen our private equity and M&A practice in Germany and Europe. He enjoys an excellent reputation and has extensive experience in the international M&A and private equity business.”

Since its founding in spring 2017 the German KWM practice has significantly grown. The growth includes five important new partner additions within the last three years. In October 2017, the team grew with financing and restructuring expert Daniel Ehret as well as with partner Hui Zhao, who specializes in advising on M&A transactions relating to China. In November 2017, the expansion was successfully continued with the addition of the team around the two M&A and private equity specialists Dr. Michael Roos and Markus Herz. In March 2018, tax partner Markus Hill joined the German tax team of KWM. 

We can also look back on very successful years with regard to our business. Over the last two years alone (2018/2019), the German KWM team has successfully advised on more than 40 private equity and M&A transactions, acting for the buyer or seller. In addition, we have also advised on a significant number of financing and capital market transactions.
