Deminor further develops its litigation funding activities in Germany

Deminor further develops its litigation funding activities in Germany with the addition of Patrick Rode in Dusseldorf. Patrick Rode will bring experience and expertise in commercial, securities and antitrust litigation to further increase Deminor’s footing in the German litigation funding market.

Deminor is pleased to announce the appointment of Patrick Rode as Senior Legal Counsel. He will strengthen the team dedicated to the German litigation funding market already consisting of Felix von Zwehl, Dr. Malte Stübinger and Jasna Jarmuschke.

Patrick will be based in Dusseldorf and strengthens the German team in Brussels and Hamburg in Deminor’s continued approach to expand within the German market. Erik Bomans, CEO of Deminor: “After the opening of Deminor’s German office in Hamburg in 2021, the demand for Deminor’s litigation funding services in Germany continues to increase. We very much welcome the opportunity to bring Patrick on board and to now also have a presence in the western region of Germany known as the Rhineland.”

Patrick is an experienced commercial litigator who is admitted to the bar in Germany and who has worked on a broad range of domestic and multi-national disputes. His focus lies on cross-border post M&A-litigation and antitrust damages disputes, which are becoming increasingly relevant for Deminor’s business. Patrick comes with experience working for several renowned national and international law firms, most recently as an Associate with Latham & Watkins in the firm’s Litigation & Trial practice and as a Litigation & Disputes Partner with a medium-sized German law firm.

Patrick was recognised by the US publishing house Best Lawyers in the category „Ones to Watch 2023” in Litigation.

On joining Deminor, Patrick comments: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining a firm with such a great track record and growth rate. Litigation funding is still at a very early stage in Germany, and I look forward to promoting the benefits of third-party funding and especially the opportunities Deminor has to offer.”
