Now that the Deutsche Bank AG and Commerzbank merger is dead in the water, UniCredit S.p.A. is looking to bid on Commerzbank. UniCredit hired some investment bankers to advise on a bid for Commerzbank. UniCredit is working with Lazard, specifically through Joerg Asmussen, the former German deputy finance minister, and JPMorgan.
