Berlin/Munich, 15 January 2018. BBL Bernsau Brockdorff today announced the engagement of the attorney Tom Braegelmann as of January 1, 2018. Tom will work closely with partner Peter Jark in BBL’s thriving international restructuring practice, with a focus on modern technology.
Tom was working many years as an international business lawyer with a dual-qualification in Germany and the US for major international law firms in Germany – the last four years together with Peter Jark focusing on international restructuring matters. Prior to working in Germany, Tom acted for more than three years as a bankruptcy and IP lawyer in New York City. Tom is closely following the latest technological developments which are currently transforming the legal sector, namely the digitization of restructuring and insolvency practice worldwide. Tom’s broad and deep legal experience as well as his thought-leadership concerning legal technology innovation will be an excellent addition to BBL’s legal practice.
The focus of his activities will continue to include the counselling in legal tech and artificial intelligence.
Speaking on Tom’s engagement, Peter Jark said, „Tom is an outstanding lawyer and we are proud that he joined our firm. He will significantly strengthen our international practice and our footprint in the market of technological development. This sector will be an important asset class in the future and we will build up a team with Tom to be market leader in this segment.“
Tom added, „This is a great time to be a modern lawyer. To work with one of Germany’s leading restructuring law firms during rapid technological changes and at a time of new financial and transactional innovations is a unique chance in order to strengthen the legal profession for the benefit of society and our clients.“
BBL is one of the leading German law firms with excellent connections, focusing solely on special situations – restructuring, rehabilitation and insolvency. We have significant experience in drawing up and implementing complex restructuring concepts within and outside the scope of insolvency proceedings. More than 50 lawyers are present in Germany and in London.
