DLA Piper appointed Partner Marcell Nemeth as the firm's new Head of the Finance Practice.

Nemeth takes over from Partner Oskar Winkler who has been at the helm of the practice for more than a decade.

Nemeth, who joined DLA Piper from Wolf Theiss recently (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on December 15, 2023) is described by the firm as having "advised a range of Austrian and international clients on a wide range of complex financial matters, including lending, infrastructure projects, regulatory and other banking transactions such as acquisitions and loan portfolios."

Prior to joining DLA Piper, Nemeth spent almost nine years with Wolf Theiss. Before that, he spent two years with UniCredit Bank Austria Vienna as Vice President in the Corporate & Investment Banking department. Earlier, he spent three years as a Partner with Pinsent Masons, ten years with Allen & Overy, and four and a half years with Shearman & Sterling as an Associate.

"Marcell brings a wealth of experience and an impressive track record," commented DLA Piper Austria Country Managing Partner Christoph Mager. "Thanks to his extensive know-how, he will play a decisive role in leading and expanding the Finance practice group."

"Being asked to lead the Austrian Finance group is an enormous honor, and I would like to thank the team for placing their trust in me," added Nemeth.
