Global law firm Reed Smith welcomes the arrival of Dr Andreas Splittgerber as a partner in the IP, Information and Innovation group in Munich. Previously a partner at Olswang, Andreas will be accompanied by two associates and a secretary. Reed Smith has embarked upon a strategic expansion of its German practice in recent years, and Andreas’ arrival will further enhance the offering to clients in the jurisdiction.

“The arrival of Andreas deepens our data protection, privacy and technology law capabilities in the critical German market, and gives us another business-focused data lawyer able to serve the needs of our clients across Europe. The timing could not be better as clients in all industries set about planning and implementing BCRs and GDPR-driven changes. Andy’s work experience in the US will also help us deliver the global solutions that our clients need” said Mark Melodia, co-chair of the IP, Information and Innovation group.
