Frankfurt, December 18th 2019

The ranks of PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal AG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft (PwC Legal) were swelled on December 1st 2019 with the addition of an expert in corporate and transformation law, Matthias A. Diegelmann. He joins the Global Transformations team in Frankfurt am Main as a Senior Manager, having previously worked at Allen & Overy as an Associate in corporate/M&A for four years. There, he focused on corporate restructurings, multinational transactions and complex transformation and corporate law issues.

In recent years, Matthias Diegelmann has been instrumental in the realignment and restructuring of the Volkswagen Financial Services subgroup in Europe. He has also advised many banks and financial service providers on all matters of corporate law as part of their Brexit preparations.

The Global Transformations group is an initiative of PricewaterhouseCoopers GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft (PwC) and PwC Legal, in which experts from Tax, Legal, Valuations, Finance and Delivering Deal Value offer holistic support from a single source for cross-border restructuring projects. For example, PwC Legal is providing advice on corporate law to Bayer for its integration of Monsanto, to Boehringer for its takeover of Ingelheim Merial, and to Merck for its acquisition of Sigma-Aldrich. It is also providing consulting to Bayer on the carve-out of its Animal Health division. PwC Legal’s Global Transformations team, headed by Dr Simon Dürr, is one of the largest in Germany.

“Global Transformations continues to be one of the fastest-growing areas of PwC Legal. We are delighted to welcome Matthias Diegelmann on board, another proven expert in the field. With his many years of experience and his international focus, he is a perfect fit for our continued expansion,” says Steffen Schniepp, Managing Partner at PwC Legal.
