The only reason to do this would be that the German management have convinced Chicago to release more funds if they moved – “like Linklaters did” – from Cologne to Dusseldorf to find some laterals.

The Linklaters people who did not move formed Oppenhoff Partner. They have an excellent reputation and are well connected all over Germany.
