Dirk Liedtke Project List

The list below is an extract of over 100 completed deals, mostly performed as MD with former employers (Raymond James, Unicredit, Deutsche etc.) or the partnership (Mummert & Co.). They can be sorted by industry sector or occasion. This selection should give an idea about our main competencies. Besides M&A, we focus on equity financing projects.
