Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has recruited a team of six Orrick lawyers into its real estate and infrastructure practice in Berlin.

Two partners, Dr Norbert Impelmann and Dr Albrecht von Breitenbuch, along with four other lawyers, will move to BLP on 1 October 2015, the firm has announced today.

Norbert was Orrick's Berlin office leader and head of the firm's real estate practice in Germany.

Joining Impelmann and von Breitenbuch in the move are senior associate Dr Katharina von Rosenstiel, managing associate Dr Ruben Pisal and associates Henning Bigalke and Maxim Gnatjuk. They will be joined by four support staff.

The team's integration will be led by Roland Fabian, managing partner of BLP in Germany and a member of the firm's board.

"Germany, and in particular Berlin, ranks highly in Europe's 10 most active real estate markets and there is huge potential for us as a firm in the region," commented Fabian.

"It is a hugely exciting time as we are set to see continuing high levels of investment in the coming months in European real estate."

BLP's Berlin office opened in September 2011 alongside its Frankfurt office and advises clients investing into and out of Germany. The German practice comprises a multidisciplinary team of German lawyers who are integrated into the firm's international real estate group.

The lateral hires come after BLP appointed nine lawyers from boutique law firm Haley & Co into its Hong Kong office to expand its real estate and infrastructure offering in Asia.
