Comment: In this respected antitrust practice, Herrlinger is reorganizing the Hamburg team. In addition to some new hires and internal promotions, stronger internal integration is a decisive element of the change following the departure of an experienced partner to Allen & Overy last year. The German market is not very aware of the activity of the experienced and highly regarded antitrust lawyers in the Brussels office and the international practice. But the teams were recently working at capacity on a steady flow of merger controls from the busy M&A practice; Schulz advised the Arabian shipping company UASC on a merger with Hapag Lloyd. Herrlinger was also part of a group that successfully defended a company in an investigation by the British cartel authorities.
Recommended: Dr. Justus Herrlinger, Axel Schulz.
