McDermott to Strengthen Health Practice with Counsel in Munich


McDermott Will & Emery strengthens its Healthcare and Life Sciences practice in Munich with Deniz Tschammler as Counsel. Prior to joining the Firm, Deniz was with another international law firm for almost six years.

Deniz Tschammler specializes in advising pharmaceutical companies and medical devices manufacturers on regulatory and contractual matters as well as compliance issues. He also represents clients in commercial negotiations, internal investigations, and official and court proceedings. In addition, he has extensive expertise in restructuring and M&A transactions in the healthcare sector.

Eric Zimmerman, global head of McDermott’s Health Practice states: “McDermott’s Healthcare practice has a strong presence and brand in Europe in general, and Germany in particular. We are constantly seeking ways to enhance that presence and brand and to better serve our clients. Deniz substantially adds to our capabilities in Europe and we expect him to immediately deliver substantial value to our clients and the Firm.”

“With Deniz, we further expand our scope of advice in Munich and we gain another lawyer with profound expertise for our life sciences team in Germany,” says Munich partner Stephan Rau, head of McDermott’s European Health Practice.

In 2018, a team of life sciences specialists around the renowned corporate/M&A partner Rüdiger Herrmann had moved to McDermott. The practice, which now counts 12 lawyers, specializes in particular on regulatory issues and transaction-related advice in the healthcare sector.
