Deloitte Legal has strengthened its cross-location team in the area of Dispute Resolution & Litigation as well as the Government & Public Sector at the Cologne office with a new addition: Corporate lawyer Dr. Martin Wittmann (43) has been appointed as a partner at Deloitte Legal as of January 1, 2023.

Wittmann has been representing clients in litigation, arbitration and mediation proceedings for around 14 years. His work focuses on advising and representing the public sector and its companies. Most recently, he was a partner in a large commercial law firm, where he assisted municipalities in setting up and financing joint ventures for broadband expansion. Wittmann is also an expert in M&A projects including post-merger disputes. He regularly advises board members on their rights and obligations and represents them in defending themselves against claims. At the federal level, he most recently appeared as a representative of a federal ministry in connection with pandemic measures. Martin joins Deloitte Legal together with Dr. Christian Rath and Philipp Weis, who both join as senior associates.

Based at Deloitte Legal's Cologne office, Wittmann will contribute to the expansion of the Dispute Resolution service area led by Michael Falter.

Michael Falter, Head of the Dispute Resolution Service Line: "With Dr. Martin Wittmann and his team, we are significantly expanding our expertise in the public sector and thus consistently continuing our strong growth of the Dispute Resolution practice."

Thomas Northoff, Managing Partner Deloitte Legal, added: "Deloitte Legal's litigation and arbitration advisory and public sector practices continue to grow very encouragingly - we are delighted to have attracted Dr. Martin Wittmann to our Cologne office."

Commenting on his motivation for the move, Martin Wittmann says: "Deloitte Legal's dynamic development and use of digital solutions provides an excellent environment to effectively meet clients' needs in an interdisciplinary manner. I look forward to further expanding the practice and to interdisciplinary cooperation, especially in the impressively developing Government & Public Sector area."
