Haarmann Hemmelrath & Partner is strengthening its European links as it takes on a Central and Eastern European expert as a partner in its Berlin office.
Business lawyer Peter Diedrich joined at the beginning of October from Quack, a successor to the now defunct Gaedertz. Diedrich specialises in contract law, company restructuring and reorganisation, investment, joint ventures and property and construction law. To date, his clients are German, Polish, US and Scandinavian and his role at Haarmanns will include advising Central European clients requiring advice on Central European companies. "The work I've been doing both within and outside of Poland ties in perfectly with Haarmanns' [international] approach. Whereas in the past I've always had to call on Polish firms for representation, now our office in Warsaw will be able to handle matters over there," he said. Haarmanns has also taken on an insurance and leasing partner in Moscow. Christian Becker is joining from Knauthe Paul Schmitt, where he advised on company law, international law of contract, leasing, insurance law and international transport law.
