SJ Berwin develops further

SJ Berwin has announced a further development in its European expansion. SJ Berwin Knopf Tulloch Steininger has strengthened its presence in Germany with the appointment of Dr Sebastien Gronstedt.

Dr Gronstedt will be joining the Frankfurt office and will specialise in private equity and M&A transactions. He was previously an international partner at Baker & McKenzie, which is where SJ Berwin poached its German team from late last year. Dr Uwe Steininger leads this team.

The appointment follows the opening of the firm’s Paris office last month, where George Pinkham from Salans Hertzfeld & Heilbroon has set up a team (see evcj March 2001).

SJ Berwin has offices in London, Munich, Berlin, Paris, Madrid and Brussels.
