Under the name of Arnecke Sibeth Dabelstein, the new firm will become one of the largest mid-market players in the German legal market, with more than 150 fee earners working from offices in Frankfurt/Main, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Leer and Dresden. Dr. Marco Remiorz, Dr. Wolfgang Scholl and Dr. Maximilian Gutsche will become managing partners.
Dr. Jan Dreyer, current managing partner of Dabelstein & Passehl, explained the strategic move: “Complementing our internationally acknowledged competence in the maritime industry as well as transportation and logistics sectors with Arnecke Sibeth’s equally strong position in the areas of aviation, transport and logistics was a decisive factor for the merger.”
According to Dr. Wolfgang Scholl, the new firm “will become the largest legal services provider in Germany for domestically and globally trading enterprises in the areas of transport, logistics, the maritime industry as well as aviation.” Additional practice areas include real estate, corporate finance, insurance, energy, competition and procurement law.
