Two new partners in Freiburg


The commercial law firm SNP Schlawien has gained two experienced lawyers, Dr. Kai-Oliver Giesa and Dr. Wolf Beck, as new partners for its team at the Freiburg office as of February 1, 2021.



Dr. Kai-Oliver Giesa (41), who comes from CMS Hasche Sigle (Stuttgart), specializes in commercial and distribution law and will further expand the distribution law practice at SNP Schlawien. He advises clients on all legal issues relating to purchasing, production and distribution, in particular on the drafting and negotiation of operational contracts. Another focus of his work is the area of product liability. Here, he advises on product warnings and product recalls, among other things. Dr. Giesa also has extensive experience in setting up and restructuring distribution systems. He regularly drafts authorized dealer agreements, commercial agency agreements, franchise agreements, commission agreements and brokerage agreements and supports his clients in the corresponding negotiations and conclusions.


Dr. Wolf Beck (39) is a specialist attorney for commercial and corporate law. One of his main areas of practice is the drafting of articles of association and accompanying regulations such as pool and shareholder agreements. In particular, his clients include family businesses in which the number of shareholders has increased or is to increase due to the inclusion of the next generation. In addition, he advises managing directors and other board members on the fulfillment of their legal obligations within the scope of so-called corporate housekeeping. Another focus of Dr. Beck is the law of succession. With his experience in the aforementioned areas of law, he is a sought-after contact for questions relating to corporate succession. Previously, Dr. Beck worked for the law firm GKD Rechtsanwälte, Freiburg.

With these two new additions, SNP Schlawien is expanding its personnel capacities at the Freiburg office, which opened in 2010, to a total of five partners and seven associates, making it one of the larger commercial law firms in the region.

"We warmly welcome our new colleagues Dr. Giesa and Dr. Beck and are very much looking forward to working with them," said Moritz Pohle, LL.M. Eur, Partner in the Freiburg office, welcoming the additions. "Together, we offer our clients an even more comprehensive service and strengthen in particular the areas of distribution law, corporate law and succession planning at SNP. This growth has been made possible not only by our attractive office structure, but also due to the space created by the imminent move to the new Volksbank premises."
