Partner appointment bolsters Linklaters’ German real estate practice

Dr Carsten Loll, currently International Group Head of Real Estate at DLA Piper, will join Linklaters’ Real Estate practice as partner in the Frankfurt and Munich offices.

Dr Loll is one of Germany’s leading real estate lawyers with many years of industry experience and a strong network of contacts within the German and international real estate industry. He is a key addition to Linklaters’ Real Estate team and will work closely with German practice group head Wolfram Krüger. Dr Loll is also a member of the executive committee of the Urban Land Institute Germany and serves as the institute’s local chair in Munich.

Yves Moreau, Global Head of Real Estate at Linklaters, said:

“We are delighted that Dr Loll will be joining the team. He knows the German and international real estate transaction business inside and out and has a great network of contacts. His appointment is a key part of the expansion of the real estate team and will help to significantly strengthen our offering both in Germany and at an international level.”

Dr Cartston Loll added:

“Having helped the German real estate practice become firmly established within DLA Piper over the past six years, I very much look forward to taking on this new challenge and to working within Linklaters’ top-class transaction business. The dovetailing of fund and tax structuring, investment law and financing practices places Linklaters in an excellent position in the Real Estate arena. The latter represents an extraordinary asset for this rapidly developing and booming market.”

The appointment of Dr Loll brings the number of partners in Germany to 64 partners, having added two new partners and a counsel to its international Real Estate sector team.
