Partners at Wragge & Co and Graf von Westphalen Bappert & Modest vote for exclusive alliance

Wragge & Co has formed an exclusive alliance with top 20 German firm Graf von Westphalen Bappert & Modest, snapping up the last eligible firm in the German market. Partners at the two firms voted the deal through unanimously last week.

Wragges managing partner Quentin Poole said the two firms would operate as a merged firm in relation to commercial conflicts in a similar system to that used in Herbert Smith’s alliance with Gleiss Lutz.
