MUNICH, GERMANY — On January 2, 2004, Dr. Wolfgang Freiherr Raitz von Frentz, LLM (35) joined McDermott Will & Emery’s Munich office as a partner in the telecommunications, media & information technology team (TMT).
Dr. von Frentz focuses his practice on media and IT law. During his five years of practice as an attorney at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Cologne he advised well-known clients from the media and TMT sector on operational matters and transactions, in particular in the area of film, television, IT-outsourcing, trademark and know how licensing.
Dr. von Frentz who is the author of numerous publications on entertainment law is looking forward to the new challenge: “McDermott is one of the few law firms with a TMT team that can offer high quality legal advice in Germany as well as in the media and IT centers on the west coast of the United States.”
“With Dr. Wolfgang von Frentz we can systematically expand our services in both areas of the present TMT practice, M&A and operative matters”, commented Dr. Ralf Weisser, LLM, the responsible TMT partner in MWE’s Munich office who is pleased about the arrival of Dr. von Frentz.
Christian von Sydow, the head of the Firm’s Munich office, commented, “We will continue to strengthen our position in Germany through internal and external growth. Besides the TMT practice concentrated in Munich, we are focusing on and will continue to expand and complement in particular the areas of M&A, corporate, tax and intellectual property.”
