German law firm Wessing & Berenberg-Gossler is closing its Leipzig office in order to consolidate its image as an international player.
Partners Klaus Bandekow and Karsten Zorn are joining local law firm Van Berg, which already has a close relationship with Wessing.
Partner Susanne Pohle is setting up her own practice in Leipzig and partners Alexander Pape and Niels Köthe are relocating to Wessing's Frankfurt office. The Munich partner in charge of the Leipzig closure Wolfgang Rehmann says the move is a strategic decision.
"We want to focus on the international brand," he says. "Since 1992, when the Leipzig office opened, it has been profitable. However, it has developed differently from the other offices. Our focus is on intellectual property, IT and corporate work, and we're consultants for big companies. The Leipzig office is not in line with this."
