MANNHEIM – US litigation firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP strengthens its German corporate litigation practice with corporate lawyer Prof. Dr. Hans-Christoph Ihrig, who will join as Of Counsel in July 2023.

Ihrig is one of Germany's best-known corporate lawyers. For more than three decades, he has advised companies and their shareholders, boards and officers - in particular of listed companies - on stock corporation and group law, transformation law, capital market law and takeover law. Over the course of his career, his focus has increasingly shifted to advising corporate bodies, often in connection with pending or existing disputes. 

Dr. Marcus Grosch, Managing Partner of the German offices says: "I have known Hans-Christoph Ihrig for over 25 years. His analytical legal mind and personal integrity make him the ideal partner to strengthen our ever-expanding corporate litigation practice. With this transformational move, we combine Hans-Christoph Ihrig's unique corporate law experience with our superior litigation expertise in one firm." 

Prof. Dr. Hans-Christoph Ihrig said, "Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP is the leading global litigation firm. Marcus Grosch and his team have established an impressive presence in Germany. I look forward to drawing on my experience and contacts to contribute to the further expansion of their corporate litigation practice."

Quinn Emanuel is the world's largest "business litigation only" law firm with over 1000 lawyers. They have been operating in Germany since 2010 and now have 50 attorneys working out of five German offices.
