Markus Brusch joins Hogan Lovells as Counsel in the Capital Markets team

Hogan Lovells is expanding its International Debt Capital Markets practice. A few months after Dr. Jochen Seitz and Peter Maier joined Hogan Lovells with their tenmember-strong team, Markus Brusch (35) is following suit, joining the team as Counsel. He worked together with Seitz and Maier at Mayer Brown for several years, most recently as Senior Associate.

Jochen Seitz said: "With Markus Brusch on board, we will further expand our advisory services in the field of regulatory advice in connection with financial instruments. We are very happy that Markus has decided to continue his career at Hogan Lovells."

Brusch has several years of experience in advising banks and financial service providers on the issuance and sale of financial instruments, especially under MiFID II/MiFIR. In addition, he is specialized in providing legal advice on debt capital transactions. Following his law studies in Würzburg, Markus Brusch worked for the banks UBS Deutschland AG and BNP Paribas S.A., and for international corporate law firms.  

The Capital Markets team will further grow with the addition of Associate Freya Carolin Siekmann (27). Siekmann studied law in Cologne and Paris, gaining experience as a research assistant in the team of Seitz and Maier at Mayer Brown during this time.

In the past months, Jochen Seitz and Peter Maier and their team have advised numerous market players on preparations regarding the new  MiFID II and MiFIR requirements, as well as on numerous bond issues, for example Volkswagen Bank, Deutsche Pfandbriefbank, Berliner Hypothekenbank and  Raiffeisenlandesbank Niederösterreich-Wien to name but a few.

Dr. Sven Brandt, head of the Debt Capital Markets practice in Germany, said: "Jochen Seitz and Peter Maier have integrated excellently into our team. Together we want to continue pursuing our growth course and further expand our leading position in Capital Markets and Banking Supervisory law."
