The highly regarded Frankfurt law firm Salger Rechtsanwälte, which is well-known for its focus on litigation and arbitration, is joining forces with Schalast on 1 October 2017.

Together with the founding partners Prof. Dr Hanns-Christian Salger (62) and Dr Thomas Försterling (73), all associates, Karoline Brandi (37) and Aleksander Barasiński (34), will be joining Schalast. Prof. Dr Salger will be joining Schalast as an equity partner, Dr Försterling as of counsel.

Prof. Dr. Salger will also be taking over as head of the Litigation & Arbitration practice group at Schalast. Prof. Dr Salger commented on this development as follows:

"The services offered by the law firms Schalast and Salger complement each other perfectly. Above all our litigation and arbitration experience will lead to the creation of a particularly strong and effective group in this area in Frankfurt. This move is also a perfect fit for our client portfolio, both with respect to the representation of clients, for example when defending themselves against investor lawsuits, and our established M&A and corporate/capital markets practice."

Prof. Dr Christoph Schalast added:

"We have known and valued the law firm Salger for many years and recently collaborated for the first time with respect to clients on the representation of an eastern European city in arbitration proceedings. We are very pleased about this substantial strengthening of our Frankfurt practice."

Salger joining Schalast means that our Litigation & Arbitration practice group will in future comprise 4 partners, 1 of counsel and 6 associates.
