GvW Graf von Westphalen has just promoted Corinna Lindau and Dr Hartmut Henninger to Equity Partners effective 1 January 2021. Both have grown their entire career within the firm and have now become the latest experts to join the firm’s equity partnership.
Corinna Lindau is a specialist in administrative law in the Public Law practice group at our Hamburg office. Ms Lindau’s work focuses on environment and planning law, including advising both businesses and public authorities on permit and plan approval procedures. She is originally from Hamburg and was part of a team of ten lawyers that just recently won a case establishing the right for the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link to be built. Moreover, Ms Lindau has been committed to the training of legal clerks in Hamburg for many years.
Dr Hartmut Henninger is also based at our Hamburg office and specialises in advising businesses on customs and international trade law. In addition to his export control, sanctions and customs work, Dr Henninger’s VAT law expertise makes him an important addition to our Customs and International Trade Law team, which currently counts ten specialists. Another important field of interest for him is international law; he has acted many times as judge in the Jessup Moot Court competition, which counts GvW among its supporters.
In addition, Dr Michael Engel, Stefan Glock, Anton Kastenmüller and Wolf Müller have been appointed Associate Partners:
Dr Michael Engel is a lawyer and tax advisor at GvW’s Frankfurt office focusing on transaction and corporate tax law advice and on tax-efficient structuring of business and asset succession.
