GSK Stockmann + Kollegen expands its Frankfurt office with Dr. Hans-Joachim Otto

GSK Stockmann + Kollegen continues its growth course and welcomes an-other distinguished practitioner: Dr. h.c. Hans-Joachim Otto joins GSK’s Frankfurt office as Of Counsel, effective as of September 1. Dr. Otto, who was a member of the German Bundestag for almost two decades and who held the position of Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry Economic Affairs until December 2013, most recently worked as a notary and lawyer for FPS, where his main practice areas were real estate law, law of succession, and estate planning. Beyond this, his multifaceted areas of activity also in-clude regulated industries, e.g., media, telecommunications, and energy. Therefore, Dr. Otto ideally complements GSK’s strategy of focusing on sec-tors and areas of expertise.

Hans-Joachim Otto joins GSK as a „practicing“ notary and lawyer with long-standing professional experience. Dr. Rainer Werum, partner in the Frankfurt office of GSK Stockmann + Kollegen, comments: “We are very pleased to welcome Hans-Joachim Otto as a top lawyer and notary. His competences complete our notary office and our advisory services in the practice area of estate planning and corporate succession in an ideal way.”

Furthermore, Hans-Joachim Otto possesses an extensive personal network.
“With Hans-Joachim Otto, we have gained another prominent practitioner with politi-cal experience who is very well connected, and who is a great fit with respect to our focus on core competences and sector groups as, e.g., energy or media”, adds Dr. Dr. Olaf Schmechel, Co-Managing Partner of GSK Stockmann + Kollegen.
