GSK names Real Estate Partner

GSK Stockmann + Kollegen is pleased to appoint Dr. Gösta Christian Makowski equity partner effective as of the beginning of 2014. The law firm is continuing the tradition of strengthening the partnership with candidates from its own ranks.

„We intentionally foster the development of personal, professional and entrepreneurial competencies in our professionals," says Dr. Mark Butt, jointly with Dr. Oda Wedemeyer responsible for HR at GSK Stockmann + Kollegen. "Through the elaborate training program of the GSK Academy we have been able to support our lawyers continuously and consistently in their development."

Dr. Makowski studied in Erlangen and London (LL.M.). He was a research assistant at the University of Bonn and received his doctorate degree there. Since 2005 he has worked in the law firm’s Frankfurt office and was named local partner in 2011. Dr. Makowski advises clients on real estate business law. His practice focuses on real estate transactions and commercial space leasing law. Some of the projects recently lead by Dr. Makowski include advising the TeamBank AG in the development and leasing of its new corporate headquarters in Nuremberg, advising Deka on the sale of a listed real estate object on the Kurfürstendamm, and the acquisition of parts of the socalled Hafenspitze in Dusseldorf. In addition, Dr. Makowski advises, among others, clients such as IVG, LaSalle, Peakside or Strategic Value Partners.
