Freshfields in Germany
In 2000 two premium German-Austrian firms, Bruckhaus Westrick Heller Löber and Deringer Tessin Herrmann & Sedemund, merged with London ‘magic circle’ firm Freshfields.
This combined three renowned reputations with hundreds of years of combined legal experience – placing the newly formed Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP in a unique position among international law firms.
