Commenting on the promotions, Dr. Oliver Glu╠łck, Co-Managing Partner at GSKStockmann, said: “We congratulate all appointees very warmly on their promotions and wish them all much success in their new roles. The promotion of 14 of our own up-and-coming talents is a strong signal that we are continuing to pursue our growth targets even during Corona’s challenging times. We are particularly pleased that we were able to further increase the proportion of women in our partnership with five outstanding female colleagues. The appointment of three partners from Luxembourg was also a conscious decision to further develop our international orientation in terms of our position as a leading independent European corporate law firm. Furthermore, with these promotions we are strengthening our entire scope of expertise and sectors within our law firm which in turn enables us to optimally advise our clients on future issues with our focused orientation and extensive industry experience.“
