YPOG adds notarial services in its offering and expands partner base: Lilly Fiedler joins from Freshfields

Berlin – As of July 2021, YPOG will strengthen its Team with Lilly Fiedler, a lawyer and notary public with a doctorate in law. Fiedler will join YPOG as a partner, expanding the firm's partner base to 16.  Lilly will be focusing on notarial services, offering the full range of notarial services, including corporate law and real estate law, supplemented by advice and structuring in inheritance law, inter alia corporate succession, and family law. In order to strengthen this new business area, additional employees will join the YPOG Team. As a law firm with predominantly digital processes, YPOG will also focus on the implementation of comprehensive digital processes with regard to notarial services as well.

"Knowing Lilly Fiedler as a notary and new partner in the YPOG Team in the future fills us with pride. Together with her, we will tap into new areas of business, increase our clout in the core area of corporate and drive the growth of the firm. Lilly passed the notary public examination with first-class results and, in addition to her many years of legal expertise in the field of antitrust law, she brings experience as a permanent notary representative," says YPOG Managing Partner Helder Schnittker. "Moreover, her personality makes her a perfect fit for our appreciative corporate culture and agile way of working," Schnittker added.

"I am very happy to now be part of the YPOG partner circle and at the same time to have the opportunity to shape the notary business and to build up the area independently," says Lilly Fiedler. "The dynamics of this firm and the spirit of the Team fascinate me and I am excited to see how we will continue to write this success story together," she adds.
