Since January 1st, 2024, lawyer and employment law specialist Andre Appel has become a partner at Ogletree Deakins’ Berlin office. He had already been working there as Counsel since 2020 and since then has been advising private and public employers on all matters of individual and collective employment law as well as collective bargaining and civil service law. His expertise in employee data protection is of particular importance to the firm due to many global mandates. Andre Appel has been working as a lawyer since 2009 and has held the title of employment law specialist since 2017. Before joining Ogletree Deakins, he worked for a medium-sized German full-service law firm for several years.

Dr. Ulrike Conradi, Managing Partner of Ogletree Deakins in Berlin, very much welcomes the appointment of Andre Appel as a partner. “At Ogletree Deakins, the path to partnership is a transparent process that rewards professional expertise and commitment. Andre Appel’s successful promotion underlines the importance that is attached to European offices, particularly in the United States.” The Berlin office had already strengthened at the partner level in December 2023 with the move of Dr. Martin Roemermann to Ogletree Deakins.

Ogletree Deakins is a global employment law boutique that also provides highly specialized advice to employers in the USA and all around the globe. More than 950 lawyers work for the firm worldwide, around 50 of whom are based in the three European offices in London, Paris and Berlin.

“I am looking forward to actively and responsibly shaping the growth process of the German office in the coming years,” says Andre Appel. Currently, there are ten professionals working at the Berlin office.
