Dewey & LeBoeuf has boosted its Frankfurt office, hiring the head of Weil Gotshal & Manges’ German antitrust and regulatory practice, as the firm looks to become a force in European competition and antitrust.
Michael Holzhäuser, a senior associate at Weil in Frankfurt, will join Dewey as a partner on 1 December; he will be the only full-time antitrust lawyer in the office.
Holzhäuser has experience of advising on competition, merger control and cartel cases in the financial institutions, energy, telecoms and automotive sectors.
According to Dewey Frankfurt partner Benedikt von Schorlemer, Holzhäuser will work closely with the corporate team.
The hire is part of the firm’s strategy to increase its competition and antitrust capability across Europe and follows close on the heels of Ughi e Nunziante competition partner Rino Caiazzo’s recruitment, who joined Dewey’s Rome office in July with a team of four associates.
“We’ve been strategically growing our competition and antitrust team across Europe and Michael’s appointment is an essential element,” said London-based competition partner Peter Crowther. “We can now offer clients a stronger antitrust service across our European offices. This is an important capability for many of our multinational clients.”
