Schalast continues to grow: Arnecke Sibeth Dabelstein's lawyer and notary public strengthens notary's office and Corporate/M&A practice group

Schalast's growth course continues. After the firm recently strengthened its Banking & Finance practice group with Dr. Thorsten Voß and opened a new office in Düsseldorf with the local SKW Schwarz partners, Stephanie Kandel (35) is going to join Schalast on September 1, 2020. Ms. Kandel has previously worked in the Frankfurt office of Arnecke Sibeth Dabelstein and is joining Schalast as a partner. She will strengthen the Corporate/M&A practice group as well as the notary's office and build up the succession planning practice.

Ms. Kandel was admitted to the bar in 2012 and began her professional career at Schmalz Rechtsanwälte. In 2014 she then moved to Arnecke Sibeth Dabelstein. Since her appointment as a notary in 2019, Ms. Kandel has worked there as Of Counsel and advised on commercial and corporate law, M&A and inheritance law.

"Our notary's office is an important strategic component for us in providing all-round advice to medium-sized/Mittelstand companies and we are very pleased that we have found an experienced colleague in Stephanie Kandel who will further strengthen this area. We also want to continue to grow in the notary's office", says Managing Partner Prof. Dr. Schalast.

The Corporate/M&A practice group currently comprises four partners, two counsel and four associates. The notary's office of Schalast will grow to four notaries with Ms. Kandel. In addition, Dr. Hans Hofmann, an experienced retired notary public, joined Schalast in 2019 from Mayer Brown.
