    Nicolas Nohlen, Frankfurt partner and head of Ashurst's German dispute resolution practice, added: "Volker's experience in white-collar crime, internal investigations and compliance is the perfect complement to our existing German disputes practice. We are thrilled that Volker is joining us, he will allow us to further strengthen our Frankfurt offering and successfully expand this area with his arrival."

    Volker Rosengarten added: "Ashurst's outstanding position in dispute resolution and its strong global experience in white-collar crime and investigations make the firm an attractive platform for my future work. I am very much looking forward to working with the team."
