Wolf Bussian becomes new Managing Partner at Allen & Overy

15. June 2020

Frank­furt am Main — The part­ner­ship of Allen & Overy has appoin­ted Dr. Wolf Bussian, LL.M. (43, photo) has been appoin­ted as the new Mana­ging Part­ner for Allen & Overy’s German offices. He succeeds Thomas Ubber (Senior Part­ner) and Dr. Astrid Krüger (Mana­ging Part­ner) in the same posi­tion. The successful term of office of Thomas Ubber and Astrid Krüger ended as sche­du­led on April 30, 2020. Due to the phase of inten­sive Corona rest­ric­tions, they had still contin­ued their work for a tran­si­tio­nal period.

Wolf Bussian was admit­ted to the bar in 2005. He joined Allen & Overy in 2013 as a part­ner in the Liti­ga­tion & Arbi­tra­tion prac­tice group, which he has led for two years. He specia­li­zes in complex and large-volume dispu­tes and inves­ti­ga­ti­ons in the finan­cial sector.
“On behalf of the part­ner­ship, I would like to thank Thomas Ubber and Astrid Krüger for their dedi­ca­tion and the successful deve­lo­p­ment of Allen & Overy’s German offices in recent years,” said Wolf Bussian on taking office. With Bussian, a part­ner who has demons­tra­ted leader­ship and busi­ness deve­lo­p­ment skills is once again taking on respon­si­bi­lity. Bussian will use the next four years to conti­nue Allen & Overy’s successful deve­lo­p­ment: “These are chal­len­ging times for all of us — our employees, our clients and our society. We are guiding our clients around the world through the econo­mic crisis trig­ge­red by the coronavirus.”
The new Mana­ging Part­ner relies on the strengths of Allen & Overy: “In such diffi­cult situa­tions there are also unique oppor­tu­ni­ties. Our part­ners and staff demons­trate enorm­ous flexi­bi­lity, inno­va­tive strength, relia­bi­lity and soli­da­rity even in these times. Toge­ther, we will shape our legal advice in an inno­va­tive and future-proof way.”
