Freshfields ramps up partnership in Germany

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has elected more new partners to its partnership in Germany than it has in the UK

From 1 May there will be eight new partners in the UK, while 11 have been elected in Germany. Three have been elected in Milan, two in Amsterdam but none in the US. Chief executive Alan Peck said the numbers represent a good ongoing level of growth and that the firm is pretty confident in Germany. A total of 29 partners will be made up, compared with last year's 43.
