Gorrissen Federspiel appoints three new partners

9. December 2022

The three partners will boost the Shipping/Offshore/Transportation, Disupute Resolution and Banking & Finance practice groups.

Three internal candidates will join the Gorrissen Federspiel partner group after the New Year: Johan Casper Hennings, Søren Henriksen and Tina Herbing. They have all pursued their entire careers with the firm.

”We are very pleased to welcome three talented attorneys to the partner group. Each will bring new skills and perspectives to the partner group. They are familiar faces who have all pursued their careers at Gorrissen Federspiel and with whom we therefore share strong professional ties and values,” says Managing Partner Martin André Dittmer.

In addition to ensuring the ongoing renewal of the partner group, the three newly appointed partners will strengthen the Shipping/Offshore/Transportation, Dispute Resolution and Banking & Finance practice groups.

”We are leaders in all three areas. We want to maintain and expand this position, and the new partners will be an important element in achieving this,” explains Martin André Dittmer.

Gorrissen Federspiel’s partner group appointed the new partners on Thursday evening.
They will join on 1 January 2023.
