Effective January 1, 2021, Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek will admit two Salaried Partners from its own ranks into equity partnership. Nine Senior Associates will become Salaried Partners. “The fact that in a year such as this one which was particular in so many ways, two lawyers have accomplished the step to become Equity Partners and nine Senior Associates will become Salaried Partners once again highlights our internal potential. It also reinforces our conviction that our firm offers excellent internal development opportunities. We would like to wish our peers continued success and look forward to working with them in the future,” said Dr. Pär Johansson, Managing Partner for Human Resources.
