Ex-managing partner quits Pünder

Clifford Chance Pünder is losing a former managing partner as Irene Thiele-Mühlhan leaves to set up her own property practice

Thiele-Mühlhan was managing partner between 1988 and 1994 and has been integral to shaping the Munich office.
Next month she will set up her own office in Munich, where she will practise all aspects of real estate law and continue to advise a number of her clients, which include investors, developers, banks and other financial institutions and property developers.
Thiele-Mühlhan joined Pünder Volhard & Weber as a property partner in 1980. As managing partner she managed two mergers in Düsseldorf, including one of the first mergers among German law firms, with Axster & Partner. She also led the expansion of European alliance Pünder Group.
