Olswang, Europe's leading Technology Media and Telecommunications (TMT) firm, is expanding its full-service offering with the addition of an Employment team in Berlin. Led by new partner Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr, the team will strengthen Olswang's offering to clients of its German practice; the team will begin in April 2012.
Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr has worked with companies in the technology, internet and renewable energy sources sectors on a national and international level. Before joining Olswang, he was head of the Employment team at GSK Stockmann + Kollegen in Berlin. Prior to that, he worked for various Scandinavian law firms, including Mannheimer Swartling. Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr is the twelfth Partner to join Olswang's German practices; his experience will complement the team's commercially-focussed approach, bringing a new edge particularly when working on multi-faceted corporate transactions.
Supported by Associate Annette Mohs, the new team will focus on individual and collective German and European employment law across a variety of industries. Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr has significant expertise of working with international clients on employment transactions, restructuring and other business activities in Germany. He also has considerable experience working on matters pertaining to company pension law.
Stefan Lütje, Managing Partner of Olswang in Germany, comments: "This new team and the leadership of Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr are a perfect addition to Olswang's international offering. Manteo has an excellent reputation and we know from our own experience of working with him that this is well-deserved. There are numerous synergies between the sectors in which we work, and his familiarity with this market, as well as his contacts, is second to none."
Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr adds: "A key attraction of joining Olswang is the clear business and industry-focus of the firm, something that extends across their international offices and exactly fits the profile of the organisations with which we have strong ongoing relationships."
The clients of Dr Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr include the eBay group, which comprises companies such as PayPal, eBay Kleinanzeigen and mobile.de. Together with the Munich team, which specialises in intellectual property law, Olswang's new Employment team is a further representation of the firm's full-service offering across its core sectors of TMT.
