Andersen Global Expands in Hamburg

Andersen Global continues its expansion in Germany, announcing today that Kolaschnik Partner Rechtsanwälte, a corporate and commercial law firm with offices in Hamburg, combines its practice with Andersen & Legal in Germany. The office is the first Andersen Global location in Hamburg, and the eighth location in which Andersen Global has a presence in Germany.

Kolaschnik Partner was founded in Hamburg in 2005. Led by Partners Alexander Jehn, Dr. Albrecht Nehls and Office Managing Partner Helge Kolaschnik, the firm includes a staff of legal professionals that provide services for owner-managed companies and investment companies. The firm’s services include corporate and restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, commercial and contracts, corporate governance and finance, succession and wealth planning, privacy, IT, IP, employment law, real estate and litigation and mediation.

“By combining our practice with Andersen & Legal, we are now in a better position to help our many international clients with larger transactions and cross-border issues,” says Helge Kolaschnik. He added, “We have long viewed client service as offering a holistic approach from a single source, and that blends well with what the Andersen Global team goal has focused on for years — providing clients with a best-in-class, seamless solution.”

“We are very much looking forward to working with our new colleagues in Hamburg,” says Dr. Stefan Kraus, Managing Partner of Andersen & Legal in Germany. “With Helge Kolaschnik and Alexander Jehn, who are both Arthur Andersen alumni, and the other new colleagues, we share a common culture and the goal of expanding the Hamburg location, especially in the area of taxation.”

“Hamburg is an important economic hub in the German market, and the addition of another location in the region will allow us to add to our existing capabilities globally,” said Mark Vorsatz, Chairman of Andersen Global and CEO, Andersen. “Helge and his team are a solid group of professionals that are like-minded and provide best-in-class service.”
