GSK Stockmann expands its real estate practice with new partner Johann Rumetsch

GSK Stockmann continues its growth trajectory and strengthens its real estate practice with another renowned expert. Johann Rumetsch will join the Frankfurt office of GSK Stockmann as a partner. He comes from Herbert Smith Freehills Germany LLP in Frankfurt where he was counsel.

With Johann Rumetsch, GSK Stockmann has successfully acquired a proven real estate expert with excellent connections to French investors, especially in the Frankfurt area. He has many years of experience in German and international advisory practice with a focus on real estate transactions, joint ventures and project development.

“We are pleased to add Johann Rumetsch to our ranks as a further accomplished legal personality with an international perspective,” Dr. Olaf Schmechel, GSK Stockmann’s co-managing partner, comments on the new partner. “His proficiency ideally complements our real estate practice and our comprehensive scope of advisory services, particularly in light of the continually rising number of international mandates.” The addition of Johann Rumetsch is yet another response to the firm’s continuous success and development. 

This was confirmed by Dr. Dirk Brückner, speaker for GSK Stockmann’s practice group: “With Johann Rumetsch, we have succeeded in recruiting a highly respected and experienced industry expert for our team.” His advisory and client portfolio will assist GSK Stockmann in its further strategic growth and expansion of practice in transaction-related developments of major real estate projects. “Johann Rumetsch fits our team perfectly. We look forward to a productive working relationship.”


Regarding the upcoming collaboration, Johann Rumetsch said: “Due to its substantial development in the past few years, GSK Stockmann provides an ideal professional environment in which I can profitably implement my professional and international expertise to further expand the practice – also where practice areas overlap. At the same time, these dynamics fit my professional goals. I am very much looking forward to becoming a part of the GSK Stockmann team.”

With the addition of Johann Rumetsch, GSK Stockmann’s real estate practice is comprised of 70 lawyers.
