Dr. Ali Sahin (42) is will join the commercial law firm of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek as equity partner by February 15, 2015. Sahin will strengthen the Corporate and M&A practice working out of the Frankfurt office.
Sahin joins the firm from Paul Hastings and specializes in transnational and often technology-related corporate transactions or transactions in the Life Sciences field. As salaried partner at Baker & McKenzie, he already developed that firm's Turkey business, and he will considerably strengthen Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek's existing business with Turkey. In addition, he has experience in the fields of restructuring, compliance, and data protection.
"Ali Sahin is a gain for our firm and the Frankfurt office," said Daniel Froesch, Partner at the Frankfurt office. "With his experience in transnational deals, technology-related transactions, and his outstanding contacts involving the Turkey business, the conditions for a successful partnership at our firm are excellent."
"Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek's full service approach in particular provides me the opportunity of supporting clients much more comprehensively in the future than this has been the case in the past," said Sahin. "Additionally, the existing Turkey business completes the sound prospects for my future work at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek."
Following the addition of the entire former Stuttgart GSK office, Sahin is already the eighth partner this year reinforcing the advisory capacities of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek.
