Strengthening in M&A: Luther gains Denis Bacina

Denis Bacina's areas of expertise include mergers & acquisitions, restructuring and corporate governance. In the past, he has been involved in a variety of mergers and acquisitions, including private equity transactions, cross-border transactions, divestitures, spin-offs and joint ventures. Most recently, Denis Bacina assisted Irish toy retailer Smyths Toys Superstores in the takeover of around 90 Toys "R "Us stores in German-speaking countries.
"Luther is a rapidly growing law firm with ambitious goals. I look forward to working with my new colleagues at Luther to further expand the mid-cap M&A area in particular", says Denis Bacina.
"With Denis Bacina, we have gained an experienced M&A specialist who will further strengthen our practice, especially in mid-cap transactions," says Dr. Thomas Kuhnle, Head of M&A at Luther. "With him we will be able to further expand our distressed M&A advisory area in particular. There is considerable development potential here, especially in advising international investors".
