DWF opens in Düsseldorf

DWF, the global legal business, is to open its 4(th) office in Germany through the recruitment of the entire Düsseldorf office of Marccus Partners. 10 people, including five partners, will join DWF. Marccus Partners specialises in company law, M&A, insolvency, banking & finance, real estate and tax. Dr Norbert Knüppel, who is transferring from Marccus Partners, will be DWF's executive partner in Düsseldorf.

DWF's Düsseldorf opening will complement existing German offices in Berlin, Cologne and Munich, taking headcount in its German business to more than 80 people. Düsseldorf is DWF's second new location since the IPO in March this year, following the entry into Poland in May with the acquisition of K&L Gates Jamka.

Ulrich Jüngst, chair of DWF in Europe, said: "We are very pleased to welcome Dr Knüppel and his team to DWF. They are very highly regarded and will be an excellent addition to our German business, significantly strengthening our corporate practice domestically as well as our ability to advise on cross-border transactions throughout Europe. This move further builds our international footprint, demonstrating continued delivery on this key IPO objective."

Michael Falter, Managing Partner of DWF in Germany, added: "We welcome our new colleagues from Marccus Partners and look forward to working with them to develop an integrated Cologne - Düsseldorf office."

Dr Norbert Knüppel said: "We were attracted to join DWF's rapidly growing business with a strong reputation for innovation. It is investing in its national and global capabilities and we look forward to playing our part in DWF's continued impressive expansion."

These latest additions follow a busy month of expansion for DWF's international business. In September, DWF appointed a new corporate partner in Paris (Alexandre Piette), a head of insurance in Poland (Pawe Stykowski) and a new banking partner in the same office (Tomasz Kaczmarek). It also appointed a new corporate principal lawyer in Sydney (Kim O'Reilly).
