Limberg concentrates his practice on banking and capital markets as well as national and international asset financing. For more than a decade, he has represented credit institutions and financial service providers in complex international factoring transactions with major sellers, such as large publicly listed German (DAX, MDAX, and TecDAX) and Fortune 500 companies. He also has extensive experience negotiating loan agreements and borrowing base financing arrangements linked with receivables transactions.

Additionally, Limberg advises banks, investment funds, and investors on real estate financing with cross-border elements, including mortgage bond loans and senior and mezzanine loans. He also regularly advises on the transfer of loan portfolios in the context of restructurings.

“By welcoming Torsten, K&L Gates further expands its market position in the banking industry,” said Frankfurt partner Dr. Matthias Grund, co-leader of K&L Gates’ Finance practice. “His depth of experience will enhance the caliber of services we give our clients.”
