“We are delighted to have been able to recruit Dr. Oliver von Rosenberg and Dr. Alexander Jüngst with their Associates. The experienced peer Dr. von Rosenberg and his team are an excellent addition to our Corporate/M&A practice,” said Dr. Pär Johansson, Cologne-based Managing Partner of the firm. “With the four new team members, we are expanding our expertise in M&A not only in Cologne, but across the law firm.”
Dr. Oliver von Rosenberg is equally convinced that the change is worthwhile for both sides. “I am looking forward to my new role in a law firm that places a key focus on M&A,” said von Rosenberg about his team’s move.
