Leading global law firm Mayer Brown expands their German Banking & Finance practice: Dr. Patrick Scholl (40) joins the Frankfurt office of Mayer Brown as a partner to further strengthen the growing Debt Capital Markets & Derivatives practice.
Mr. Scholl comes from Allen & Overy, where he was a counsel in the International Capital Markets department. He advises on debt capital transactions, debt issue programs for corporates and banks, and derivative products. Since the financial crisis, Mr. Scholl has a particular focus on OTC derivatives, the clearing of financial products through central counterparties, in particular in developing clearing house rules and client clearing documentation, as well as on the implementation of EMIR, the European derivatives regulation.
“Adding Patrick to our Frankfurt office is one component of the growth strategy we are pursuing for the German practice of Mayer Brown,” says Dr. Guido Zeppenfeld, Managing Partner Germany and co-head of the global Employment & Benefits Group (EBG). “With Patrick we are strengthening our integrated banking and financial market practice, which is one of Mayer Brown’s core competences globally and in Germany.”
Dr. Jochen Seitz, head of the German Banking & Finance Group, adds: “I have known Patrick for years and he enjoys a very high reputation among clients. With his specific expertise in the field of derivatives regulation, Patrick perfectly fits to our strategy of developing regulatory driven products.”
“I am very much looking forward to further expanding my practice in the future as a member of the international, highly qualified and committed Finance team at Mayer Brown,” says Mr. Scholl.
