Shearman & Sterling's former German legacy firm, Schilling Zutt & Anschütz (SZA), has re-hired corporate partner Stephan Brandes from McDermott Will & Emery six months after he left.
Shearman & Sterling's former German legacy firm Schilling Zutt & Anschütz (SZA) has re-hired former corporate partner Stephan Brandes from McDermott Will & Emery, six months after he left Shearman's Mannheim office.
Brandes, who was based in McDermott's Munich office, has joined the Mannheim office of SZA. The base had joined Shearman in 2000 while the firm's Frankfurt office became part of Allen & Overy.
The Mannheim office regained its independence earlier this year (as reported on TheLawyer.com, 22 April).
In addition to hiring Brandes, SZA has promoted private client associate Martin Feick and corporate M&A associate Marc Löbbe to the partnership. According to senior partner Jochem Reichert the hire and promotions are proof that the independent firm is thriving.
He added: "The first weeks after the return to our roots have gone exceptionally well. Already nominating three new partners expresses our ambitions for further expansion and our conviction that even in today's market only those firms that offer exceptionally qualified young attorneys real perspectives will be successful in the long term."
Daimler is one of Brandes' clients from his time at Shearmans.
