Two new managing partners at Gleiss Lutz

Gleiss Lutz has appointed two new managing partners: Ralf Morshäuser and Johann Wagner (both pictured, respectively left and right). Current managing partners Michael Arnold and Alexander Schwarz will indeed end their duties after eight years (however, Arnold will continue to be present in the firm’s management as chairman of the partnership council, succeeding Christian Cascante in this role).

Morshäuser and Wagner aren’t new in Gleiss Lutz. The first one has been with the law firm for 22 years, becoming a partner in the Munich office in 2007 and now heading the transaction practice. The second one, a tax lawyer, has been a partner since 2013 and helped build up and expand the Hamburg office. Before joining Gleiss in 2010, he was an associate at the management consultancy McKinsey.

In a press release, Morshäuser and Wagner emphasised their commitment to full-service consulting. In an “environment increasingly characterised by regulation”, the law firm has an “excellent starting position”, they said.
