The acquisition of Schollmeyer & Steidl is a very important step. The company has offices in Frankfurt, Cologne, Munich and Dusseldorf. and serves the whole German market. Clients are both law firms and corporates. Seen the synergies with the activities of Vialegis, we will cooperate intensively both in approaching clients and in searching candidates.”
