Norton Rose expands antitrust practice with new Of Counsel in Munich
17 September 2012
International legal practice Norton Rose LLP has reinforced its German antitrust, competition and regulatory team with the hire of Dr. Matthias Nordmann (42) as Of Counsel in the Munich office.
Matthias Nordmann joined Norton Rose LLP on 17 September 2012. He will advance the development of Munich's antitrust, competition and regulatory practice. He will work closely with Michael Jürgen Werner and Christian Filippitsch, both Norton Rose LLP partners in Brussels.
Matthias was previously a senior associate at CMS Hasche Sigle in Brussels. He has wide-ranging expertise in antitrust law and EU state aid law, merger control and corporate compliance. His experience includes advising LBBW on state aid legal issues in connection with the takeover of SachsenLB, and advising on merger control proceedings before the German Federal Cartel Office relating to the takeover of Herlitz by Pelikan.
Michael Jürgen Werner, partner in the German antitrust, competition and regulatory practice said:
“We are pleased that we could win Matthias Nordmann as a very valuable addition for our team. With our presence in Brussels and Munich we are now able to offer a significantly expanded service. We have many clients in the south of Germany and can now meet the high demand locally.”
The German antitrust team at Norton Rose LLP is now comprised of two partners, two Of Counsels and three associates.
