Munich/Freiburg, 5 April 2022 – ADVANT Beiten is expected to open an office in Freiburg in the second half of 2022 and has won a team of 16 professionals for this purpose from Friedrich Graf von Westphalen.
Dr Barbara Mayer, awarded "Leading Consultant in Baden-Wuerttemberg" by the industry magazine JUVE, and Dr Jan Barth join ADVANT Beiten as Equity Partners. Gerhard Manz, also a "Leading Advisor in BadenWuerttemberg" comes as Of Counsel.

And we see a very interesting perspective in the joint expansion of the international ADVANT alliance."
