Bottermann Khorrami wins new partner and extends its international practice
Berlin based law firm Bottermann Khorrami LLP (BK Law) has won Dr. Joachim Homeister (42) as new partner of the firm starting from 1 October 2018. The Berlin native previously practiced for more than four years as counsel in the M&A/corporate and real estate practice groups of Dentons Europe LLP in Berlin and Moscow. Besides English, Italian and French, Joachim is fluent in Russian and for twelve years has been working at international law firms. Based in Berlin, he regularly also advised clients in Moscow, where he was inter alia involved in some of the most significant shopping mall developments. Apart from that, since 2008 he has been increasingly representing clients from Russia and other CIS countries in transactions in Germany, whether with respect to direct investments or investments via AIF fund vehicles.
“With Joachim Homeister we have won a renown expert for Russia who will expand and strengthen our multilingual and intercultural team”, comments BK Law’s partner Dr. Esfandiar Khorrami. “So far we mainly have been serving clients from Europe, the Far East and the US.”
Joachim Homeister looks forward to his new tasks at BK Law: “For me the local and at the same time international approach of the firm with an integrated notary’s office and a young and dynamic team appears to be the perfect platform for the further development of my practice.”
“Thus, we continue our growth strategy also in terms of head count”, complements BK Law’s partner Uwe Bottermann. “We strengthen our team in order to continue providing advice at the high standards which our clients expect, notwithstanding the increasing number of assignments.”
Apart from German market players, BK Law’s clients are mainly based in Anglo-Saxon countries, Scandinavia and Asia. They include investment companies as well as several internationally investing family offices. The investment objects are mainly properties located in Germany, with a focus on the wider Berlin area.
