Osborne Clarke adds to Cologne team with Geyr Hintz partner

Osborne Clarke has strengthened its German team with the hire of an insurance partner from Germany’s Geyr Hintz & Partners.

Bettina Plaßmann-Robertz will develop the firm’s insurance practice in Cologne, working closely with product liability and automotive head Marcus Sacre.

Plaßmann-Robertz was previously a partner in the Cologne office of Geyr Hintz. She specialises in insurance law, directors and officers insurances and product liability law for insurers in major injury cases.

Stefan Rizor, managing partner of Osborne Clarke Germany, said: “Bettina’s a great addition to our team in Cologne. Her wide experience in insurance litigation fits perfectly with our existing expertise in construction and product liability law.

“She’ll also develop the volume of cross-jurisdictional insurance work the team’s involved with.”
