Ashursts take on German partner

Herman Schlindwein, who specialises in servicing sports clients at the Linklaters & Alliance's German member firm, will bring the number of partners at Ashursts Frankfurt office to seven.

Nick Angel, managing partner of Ashurst's Frankfurt office, who took over the running of the branch in July from Graham Ward who returned to London, said at the time that he would be aiming to double its lawyer count over the next three years (The Lawyer, 19 June)

At present the firm houses about 30 lawyers in total compared to two when it set up in the region in three years ago.
