HEUSSEN wins Dr. Leisch as an experienced partner in compliance and governance
With Dr. Franz Clemens Leisch HEUSSEN is expanding the practice for Compliance and Governance at the Munich site. Dr. Leisch, who has been advising national and international clients for many years in all areas of corporate compliance, will take up his position as partner on November 1, 2020. He comes from Baker McKenzie, for which he worked for 13 years, becoming a partner in 2012.
Dr. Leisch brings extensive experience in the development of compliance management systems, in compliance risk management and in the optimization of internal control systems. He is a specialist in the areas of money laundering prevention, fraud prevention and anti-corruption. Dr. Leisch has built up the area of data-supported Compliance Risk Assessment and business partner auditing by developing specially designed Legal Tech Tools. A further focus of his work is corporate law advice, especially advising Executive Boards and Supervisory Boards on governance issues and in the event of a crisis.
Christoph Hamm, Managing Director of HEUSSEN Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft, says: "Many of our clients, especially from the real estate industry, but also from the IT industry and the public sector, need advice in compliance. After all, any company can only protect its operations from risks such as money laundering if the legal requirements and rules have been translated into clear processes and these are firmly anchored in the company. This is exactly where Dr. Leisch can help our clients, as he has many years of experience in implementing such processes. In addition, Dr. Leisch can rely on many experts to support his clients for example in real estate law - an area in which HEUSSEN is traditionally very strongly positioned".
Dr. Leisch adds: "HEUSSEN's strong position in medium-sized businesses, public companies and in the real estate sector is an excellent fit for my client base. I see great potential here and also looking forward to contribute my international consulting experience within the HEUSSEN MULTILAW network".
The Corporate Law department is one of the core areas at HEUSSEN. Approximately 30 partners and attorneys provide legal advice, especially on transactions, financing rounds and restructuring. National and international clients are supported in all corporate law matters across all locations and in all legal matters on questions of business law. The team also has extensive experience with cross-border issues.
