Beiten closes Cologne in favour of Dusseldorf

After a strategic review of its German offices, Beiten Burkhardt has announced its decision to integrate its Cologne and Dusseldorf offices into one.

After reviewing the German firm’s domestic offices, the firm’s partners concluded that Dusseldorf is a city offering the most long-term growth potential.

Therefore, the firm has announced that from March onwards, the Cologne and Dusselfdorf offices will be consolidated into its Dusseldorf premises.

The Cologne office’s partners and associates will either relocate to Cologne or Frankfurt am Main. These include cologne corporate partner Guido Krueger and employment partner Wolfgang Mohr, who will transfer to Dusseldorf with another 10 lawyers.

The firm anticipates that the Dusseldorf office will grow to over 40 lawyers within the year.
