Skadden boosts litigation and arbitration in Frankfurt
Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom has boosted its litigation and arbitration practice in Frankfurt with the hire of senior Siemens lawyer Anke Sessler.
Sessler was chief litigation counsel at the technology company for six years, before which he was a partner at Clifford Chance.
Bernd Mayer, the head of Skadden's German offices, said: ”She is a very well recognized name in the German arbitration and litigation market," adding that Sessler's corporate experience would help the firm to build relationships with German companies."Our focus is not only Siemens but also other big German corporations," he said.
Skadden's executive partner Eric Friedman said:"Anke's experience in dispute resolution complements our corporate practice in Germany and also enhances our European arbitration and litigation practice, led from London. This is our fourth partner hire in the last two years in Germany.”
