DLA Piper, a leading global law firm, proudly announces the inauguration of its latest office in Düsseldorf, slated to open its doors on April 15, 2024

The Düsseldorf office will be spearheaded by Office Managing Partner Michael Cieslarcsyk, with Corporate Partner Dr. Murad M. Daghles leading the charge in cross-border M&A transactions.

Located in the vibrant Mindspace area on the third floor of Stilwerk, the interim office will offer around 40 to 50 workstations. Plans are underway for a move to a larger property in 2025, signaling the firm's commitment to long-term growth and expansion.

Dr. Kai Bodenstedt and Dr. Martin Haller, Co-Managing Partners of DLA Piper Germany, express their anticipation for the forthcoming expansion, affirming that additional partners, counsel, and associates will be integrated into the team in the coming months.

Düsseldorf, recognised as one of Europe's foremost business centers, holds strategic importance for DLA Piper as it strengthens its local presence. Dr. Martin Haller emphasises the significance of establishing a modern and innovative office in Düsseldorf, aligning with the firm's global stature.

The interim premises offer numerous advantages, including a prime location in the heart of the old town, flexibility for future growth, and innovative features such as a retractable roof.
