Former Kocian Solc Balastik Counsel Rainer Frank has joined Dentons to lead the Czech-German collaboration group in the firm’s office in Prague.
According to Dentons, Frank, who joins as a partner, "brings more than 25 years of experience in Restructuring, Banking and Finance, and Real Estate law. He advises German-speaking clients, as well as domestic subsidiaries of German or Austrian-based groups, operating primarily in the financial sector. In this new role, he will strengthen the firm’s offering to German-speaking clients operating in the Czech Republic, in close cooperation with Dentons’ offices in Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, and Dusseldorf.”
Frank is a law graduate from the University of Tuebingen. Prior to joining Dentons, he spent four years with White & Case, a year with Wolf Theiss, and almost four years with Kocian Solc Balastik.
“Dentons’ Restructuring, Insolvency, and Bankruptcy and Real Estate practices are ranked among the very top in the Czech market, so I am excited to be joining such a great team,” said Frank. “With a strong presence in both CEE and Germany and unmatched global coverage, Dentons will provide an ideal environment to serve the complex needs of my German-speaking client base.”
“Germany and Austria are among the most important foreign investors in the Czech Republic, so enhancing our offering to German-speaking clients is an important step forward in our strategy,” said Michal Hink, Dentons’ Czech Republic Managing Partner. “Rainer has a proven track record working with leading German and Austrian companies on the Czech market. This, combined with his broad legal experience in restructuring, banking, and real estate, will make him a strong addition to our team.”
