H&P are delighted to have represented Watson Farley & Williams on their latest office opening in Düsseldorf, which will focus on their expansion within the German energy sector.
We successfully advised the team that consisted of two equity partners, Dr Thorsten Volz and Dr Torsten Wielsch and a team of six other lawyers. All were previously at Pinsent Masons in Düsseldorf prior to joining WFW, where Thorsten Volz was both local Office Head and Head of that firm’s German Energy practice.
Lothar Wegener, WFW’s managing partner, said: “While WFW has long been recognised as one of the leading law firms in Germany for energy and infrastructure expertise, our focus has historically been on finance, M&A and projects-led. Thorsten Volz, Torsten Wielsch and their team joining us represents a major expansion of both our energy expertise and regulatory practice in Germany.”
Thorsten said: “WFW is the ideal platform from which Torsten and I can contribute to the continued growth and expansion of the service WFW provides across the energy sector. We especially look forward to establishing WFW Düsseldorf and working with our new colleagues in Germany and across the firm’s international network”.
