Luther reinforces its ranks with a double boost from DLA

In a strategic move set to take effect in February, Luther is fortifying its corporate law practice in Düsseldorf with two professionals joining from the Cologne office of DLA Piper. Dr. Andreas Meyer-Landrut (65, pictured left), a long-time partner at DLA, is making the transition to Luther as an of counsel, while his former colleague, Marx Dauth (35, pictured right), is making a significant move up the ranks to become a partner at Luther. This development marks a notable expansion for Luther in the realm of corporate law, as it secures top-tier talent to enhance its legal prowess in the competitive landscape.

Andreas Meyer-Landrut, renowned for his profound knowledge in stock and corporate law within DLA Piper’s corporate practice, is set to bring his wealth of experience to Luther. Having joined DLA in August 2008 after a distinguished 21-year tenure at White & Case, Meyer-Landrut played a pivotal role in the team, which also included the esteemed corporate law partner Kerstin Schnabel, who remains with DLA.

Marx Dauth, a long-time collaborator with Meyer-Landrut, is making a significant career move by joining Luther as a partner. Commencing his legal career in 2016 at DLA, Dauth was appointed Counsel in 2022. Similar to Meyer-Landrut, Dauth specializes in advising clients from the energy and insurance sectors, with a focus on stock and corporate law. Additionally, he brings expertise in handling corporate legal disputes.
