Hengeler Mueller advises Deutsche Bank on cross-border merger of Deutsche Bank NV/SA (Belgium) and IFN Finance B.V. (Dutch Subsidiary)

04. December 2012

Deutsche Bank AG has converted two of its subsidiaries into branch offices as part of a transaction. This conversion was carried out by way of cross-border merger with a subsequent spin-off in Belgium and the Netherlands. The business operations of the former Belgium and Dutch subsidiaries will, in the future, both be conducted by a branch office.

Hengeler Mueller advises Deutsche Bank on this transaction and is responsible for coordination and structuring on an international level. The Hengeler Mueller team is led by partner Daniela Favoccia and includes partners Johannes Adolff (both Corporate), Hendrik Haag (Bank Regulatory), Hans-Joachim Liebers (Labour) and Ernst-Thomas Kraft (Tax) as well as associates Lucina Berger, Kathrin Cagalj, Philipp Hanfland, Christian Häußer and Andreas Stoll (all Frankfurt).

Last year, Hengeler Mueller had already advised Deutsche Bank AG on the merger and sub-sequent spin-off of Deutsche Bank ZRt. (Hungary) and Deutsche Bank (Portugal) S.A.
