20-strong team moves together for second time
DLA Piper in its Hamburg office. The entire team moved together previously in 2011, when it joined Bird & Bird from Hogan Lovells. The team includes five partners – Stefan Engels (TMT), Jörg Paura (corporate), Daniel Weiss (corporate), Ulrike Grübler (IP), and Michael Stultz-Herrnstadt (litigation).
DLA's Hamburg office previously had five partners and 16 associates and counsel. As a result, this hiring will almost practically double the size of the office in one fell swoop. Three additional counsel have also been hired from Bird & Bird, to join the IPT practice at the firm. The IPT practice will see two of the partners, Engels and Grübler, join its ranks.
