GSK Stockmann appoints four new Partners from its own ranks

At the Partners’ Meeting at the End of November, GSK Stockmann appointed four of its lawyers to partnership. In total, two Equity Partners and two Local Partners are joining the Partners as of January 1st, 2019. These appointments are resolutely in line with GSK’s aspiration to promote the recruitment of new Partners from its own ranks and to advance the specialization in its Sectors and Competences.

The GSK Stockmann Partners decided to add Dr. Jenny Mehlitz (Projects & Public Sector, Procurement, Berlin) and Andreas Dimmling (Restructuring/Insolvency, Corporate/M&A, Munich) as Equity Partners to the group of Partners. Furthermore, the Associates Dr. Jens Uwe Rügenhagen (Corporate/M&A, Dispute Resolution, Heidelberg) and Dr. Antonius Jonetzki (Dispute Resolution, Hamburg) were ap-pointed as Local Partners.

Especially the Sectors Public and Healthcare are going to benefit from Jenny Mehlitz’s expertise in procurement law. The two new Local Partners Antonius Jonetzki and Jens Uwe Rügenhagen are already applying their specialized knowledge in the fields of dispute resolution and corporate/M&A respectively to the Financial Services, Funds and Capital Markets Sectors and are going to systematically expand the sector-specific know-how. Finally, the firm’s corporate practice will benefit from Andreas Dimmling’s particular insolvency law and restructuring expertise which is relevant for many of the firm’s Sectors, especially Funds, Automotive/Mobility and Real Estate.

“Congratulations to all candidates on your next career step. We wish our colleagues the best of success! Appointing these new Partners underlines our goal of sustainably and strategically expanding our Sectors- and Competences-based advisory practice with our own young talents”, said Dr. Uwe Jäger, co-Managing Partner at GSK Stockmann, to comment on this decision.
