Heuking admits 15 lawyers as new equity partners and salaried partners

Effective January 1, 2022, nine salaried partners of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek will be admitted to equity partnership. In addition, six senior associates will be promoted to salaried partners. Boris Dürr, new Managing Partner for Human Resources, is convinced that the firm is charting the right course. “Our new partners’ wide range of specialties and the outstanding peers at many of our offices who will now be admitted to partnership show that we are very well equipped for the market with our full-service approach and nationwide presence.

Heuking is fortunate to have three women who are working part-time admitted to partnership and salaried partnership. Part-time partnership for equity partners had been implemented in the firm’s career concept two years ago. Dr. Susanne Stauder is already the second female partner at Heuking who had made this leap, following Kristina Schneider’s earlier promotion. Two of the new female salaried partners are also working part-time. What is remarkable about this year’s promotion to salaried partnership is that the number of women exceeds the number of men – an important signal for the future and an incentive for our young female lawyers.
