White & Case taps Siemens for Frankfurt expansion

White & Case is continuing to grow its Frankfurt office by recruiting a former in-house litigator from German conglomerate Siemens.

Wolfgang Mollenhoff, who was also previously a lawyer with Linklaters Oppenhoff & Radler before his time at Siemens which he joined in 2000, will move to White & Case as a partner.

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer lawyer Lucia Magelli will also join the Frankfurt office as of counsel for its Italian desk.

In November last year White & Case recruited Baker & McKenzie project finance partner Stephen Hodgson and SJ Berwin private equity partner Axel Pajunk for the Frankfurt office.
