Field Fisher Waterhouse is set to launch in Munich and Dusseldorf, following the hire of a four-partner team from Howrey led by German managing partner Joachim Feldges.

Feldges will oversee all three of Field Fisher’s German offices, including the firm’s existing Hamburg base. He joins alongside fellow Howrey intellectual property partners Thomas Adam and Jochen Herr in Munich, as well as Dusseldorf-based Christoph Lenz.
