Dr. Patrick Halfpap, MLE, LL.M. (Finance)
I am a corporate finance partner in the Dusseldorf office of Fieldfisher specialized on Finance and M&A transactions, corporate law advice as well as corporate litigation. I advise German as well as multinational companies and financial intermediaries in connection with corporate, commercial and finance transactions with a particular focus on private equity and venture capital.
- Corporate, M&A and Private Equity
- Financial Services
- Restructuring and Insolvency
Besides the transaction practice I advise my clients on regulatory matters and in the context of restructurings and reorganisations. Finally, I have extensive experience regarding Asset/Project financing e.g. ship financing, aircraft financing and real estate/ infrastructure projects.
Prior to joining Fieldfisher I worked for several years for a major international law firm in Germany and Hong Kong, focusing on finance and M&A.
I completed my law studies in Göttingen where I also obtained a Master of European Law (MLE.) degree. During my studies I also spent some time in France at the University of Paris II (Panthéon-Assas). In Frankfurt, I joined a Masters programme in Finance and obtained a Master of Laws (LL.M.) Thereafter, I wrote a comparative doctorate thesis on capital markets supervision in the EU and the US in Bonn in connection with research studies at the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies and the London School of Economics.
I have had several legal articles published. My work has been recognised by JUVE which lists me as a recommended corporate law expert.
I advise my clients in German, English and French.
