Duff & Phelps Strengthens Presence in Germany with New Frankfurt Office

With the opening in Frankfurt, Duff & Phelps now has two offices in Germany, and 10 within Europe.

The expansion in Frankfurt follows new offices in Madrid and in Dublin this year.

Duff & Phelps Corporation, the premier global valuation and corporate finance advisor, announced the opening of a new office in Frankfurt. Daniel Kittlauss and Dr. Timo Willershausen, Managing Directors, will jointly lead this new office which will focus on providing the firm’s core valuation advisory services.

Duff & Phelps began developing its activities in Germany in 2006. In this country, its team comprises experts in valuation and corporate finance services. The firm advises private equity funds, law firms as well as leading companies-such as Airbus Group, BASF, Burda, KKR, ProSiebenSat.1 Group, Scout24 and Telefónica.

“Duff & Phelps is strengthening its presence in Germany, in order to deepen relationships with both existing and new clients and to further increase its industry focus on the telecommunications, media & technology as well as chemicals and healthcare sectors,” explains Andreas Stoecklin, Managing Director of Duff & Phelps and Country leader for Germany.

“Following the opening of new offices in Madrid and Dublin this year, the office in Frankfurt is an additional step in our growth strategy in Europe,” says Yann Magnan, Managing Director of Duff & Phelps in France and leader for Valuation services in Europe. “Our aim is to advise our clients as they pursue business development opportunities, given the backdrop of a changing regulatory environment and increasing demands for greater transparency.”

He brings more than 15 years of experience in performing valuations for financial and tax reporting, transaction and consulting purposes. Prior to joining Duff & Phelps, Daniel worked in the Valuation and Business Modeling practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
