For the second time in a few months, Gorrissen Federspiel is strengthening its Real Estate team. This time, two external profiles join the group of partners.
“It’s a great pleasure to welcome Steen Puch Holm-Larsen and Sven Frode Frølund to Gorrissen Federspiel. Steen and Sven Frode both have strong profiles with international span and a strong track record in real estate transactions,” says Martin André Dittmer, Managing Partner.
“Their appointment is an important step on our strategic journey towards becoming even more of a leader in Real Estate.”
The addition of the new partners comes at a time when the transactions market is seeing some slowdown. Nevertheless, the timing is good, says Managing Partner Martin André Dittmer.
“This is a timely consolidation of our already strong Real Estate team. With strengthened international exposure, we expect, despite the current slowdown, an uptick in activity in terms of new clients and markets. At the same time, we and the team will be strong and unified when the activity level for real estate transactions normalises,” says Martin André Dittmer.
Jesper Avnborg Lentz, partner in Real Estate, says:
“Over the past few years, we have built up a very good practice in Real Estate with particular focus on project development and transactions. But we have an ambition to be even more present in the market. We will be one big step closer to this with the appointment of Steen Puch Holm-Larsen and Sven Frode Frølund, whose network and client portfolio are an almost perfect match for our existing business.”
Alexander Troeltzsch Larsen, also a partner in Real Estate, adds:
“We know Steen and Sven Frode well, and our dialog with them has confirmed that they share our values, mindset and not least our ambitions for Gorrissen Federspiel’s Real Estate team. And with the appointment of Steen and Sven Frode, we will be in an even better position to continue developing the team in the interests of our clients and employees.”
In addition to Jesper Avnborg Lentz and Alexander Troeltzsch Larsen, the partner group in Real Estate, Copenhagen, consists of Hans-Peter Jørgensen and Steen Hellmann, with the latter joining the partner group on 1 March. With the appointment of Steen Puch Holm-Larsen and Sven Frode Frølund, the Real Estate team in Copenhagen will now consist of six partners.
