Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) is delighted to announce that dispute resolution expert Philipp Kärcher has joined the firm in Frankfurt today as a Partner. Prior to joining WFW, he was a Partner at AGS Legal Rechtsanwälte in the same city.

Philipp focusses primarily on corporate, commercial and construction law disputes in the transport, energy and infrastructure sectors. He is especially well regarded for his expertise in corporate litigation, regularly advising on partnership, shareholder and joint venture disputes, including director and officer liability cases.

A team of two other professionals, including Associate Dr Alexander Hössl, who worked with Philipp at his previous firm, join WFW with him on the same date.

WFW German Head Dr Marcus Bechtel said: “With his extensive contentious experience across our key specialist sectors of transport, infrastructure and energy, Philipp is an excellent addition to our German dispute resolution practice. I’m delighted to welcome him and his team to WFW”.

Philipp added: “I’m excited to be joining a firm with such a strong international network as WFW, which will enable me not only to grow my practice, but also help further entrench the firm’s reputation as a ‘go to’ legal adviser in the transport, infrastructure and energy sectors. I especially look forward to working with Hamburg Dispute Resolution Partner Stefan Hoffmann to further expand WFW’s contentious practice in Germany”.
