In a strategic move aimed at reinforcing its presence in Europe, global law firm White & Case has announced the addition of competition partner Ingo Brinker to its ranks. Brinker’s recruitment marks a significant step for the firm as it doubles down on its expansion efforts, particularly within the German legal landscape.
Brinker brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having previously served at Gleiss Lutz. His expertise spans various aspects of competition law, including investigations, merger control, compliance programs, and litigation. Notably, he has represented clients before prominent regulatory bodies such as the European Commission, the European Court of Justice, the European General Court, the German Federal Cartel Office, and German antitrust courts.
Based in Düsseldorf, Brinker’s appointment underscores White & Case’s commitment to strengthening its antitrust practice in Germany. The move aligns with the firm’s broader strategy of providing comprehensive legal services to clients operating in an increasingly complex regulatory environment.
Commenting on Brinker’s addition, White & Case emphasized the strategic significance of his expertise in navigating both European and German competition law landscapes. His appointment is expected to further enhance the firm’s capabilities in advising clients on intricate competition matters, particularly in the context of cross-border transactions and regulatory challenges.
