    He has more than ten years’ transactional experience and has spent several years as a general counsel for a major textile trading company in Germany, Austria, Western and Southeast Europe.

    Michael has also gained extensive experience in negotiating and management of complex commercial contracts, with particular focus on selective distribution systems.

    Dr. Matthias Heisse, Managing Partner of Eversheds Sutherland in Germany, commented:

    "We are happy to welcome such a prominent transaction lawyer to Eversheds Sutherland. Our German practice continues its steady growth and is further strengthened by Michael’s arrival. His additional knowledge and experience as an in-house counsel will further enhance the quality of service we are able to provide to our clients."

    Dr. Alexander Niethammer, head of the Company Commercial practice at Eversheds Sutherland, Germany, commented:

    "Our corporate capability continues to strengthen and we have already won a number of new clients this year. The addition of Michael Prüßner, whose combined in-house and industry experience ideally complements our strong profile in legal project management and cross-border transactions, is further proof that we are an excellent option for senior lateral hires in the German legal market."

    Michael added:

    "Eversheds Sutherland has enjoyed impressive growth over the last year and is clearly committed to service excellence for its clients. I am very happy to be able to be part of such a wonderful team and to contribute my extensive experience as an in-house counsel to Eversheds Sutherland’s global General Counsel programme."

    Eversheds Sutherland is one of the leading legal practices for M&A transactions in Europe, according to data from Mergermarket. With the arrival of new Partner Michael Prüßner, the German corporate/M&A practice group now consists of eleven Partners and a total of 30 lawyers in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Munich.
