Hengeler makes Brussels push

Partner Christoph Stadler switches from Düsseldorf to Brussels

Hengeler Mueller is transferring partner Christoph Stadler from Düsseldorf to Brussels in a bid to boost its European competition practice.
Stadler will continue to work on German transactions but said that the growing number of large cross border deals made the Brussels antitrust practice a priority for the firm.
Stadler recently represented energy company RWE on the merger of its downstream oil business with Shell and in the E.On/Ruhrgas ministerial proceedings.
He joins Hengeler partners Jochen Burrichter, Hans-Jörg Niemeyer, Bernhard Maassen and Horst Satzky in Brussels in April.
