Linklaters Cologne breaks free to launch Oppenhoff & Partner

November 9, 2007 Linklaters’ abandoned Cologne operation will relaunch independently as Oppenhoff & Partner. The new firm will house 11 partners and 41 fee-earners and will focus on commercial, corporate and tax work. It will be led by Michael Oppenhoff, son of the late Walter Oppenhoff, who gave the firm its name, and Michael Abels. Respected corporate partner Georg Maier-Reimer will also join, along with eight others. Oppenhoff commented: “We are all very much looking forward to practising in a more personal environment, offering our employees a new, promising perspective and shaking off some of the pressures of a global firm.
