Osborne Clarke has announced an overhaul of its management structure in Germany.

The firm’s German offices have been given a new managing partner, executive team and partnership council.

Carsten Schneider takes over as managing partner from Stefan Rizor, who is credited with having set up the German practice.

Schneider is joined by newcomers Joachim Breithaupt and Uwe Brossette on the firm’s German management board, which is overseen by the newly-established German partnership council.

Schneider has been given a seat on the council, as has Rizor, who stays on with the firm in the newly-created role of senior partner. They are joined by the heads of Osborne Clarke’s German offices: Christoph Torwegge for Hamburg and Tim Reinhard for Munich; the election for Cologne's office head will take place shortly.

Osborne Clarke has 14 offices across six countries: Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and North America.
