Gleiss Lutz and the German Association of Corporate Lawyers (Bundesverband der Unternehmensjuristen e.V., “BUJ") are kicking off 2023 by establishing a joint strategic partnership.
The BUJ is the largest independent interest group for lawyers working in the legal departments of companies, institutions, associations and corporations. It is made up of in-house lawyers from over 1,400 companies and institutions, divided into 34 specialist and regional groups as well as the General Counsel Club@BUJ.
Prof. Michael Arnold, Gleiss Lutz co-managing partner, said: “We look forward to working together with the largest association of corporate lawyers in Germany and fostering the exchange of ideas and insight."
“Through joint initiatives with the BUJ and its specialist and regional groups, we will further strengthen the cooperation between Gleiss Lutz and the key decision-makers in companies. This will enable us, for example, to develop innovative event formats and services for our stakeholders," adds Dr. Alexander Schwarz, Gleiss Lutz co-managing partner.
Dr. Claudia Junker, president of the BUJ and head of Law & Integrity and general counsel at Deutsche Telekom AG, is delighted: “In Gleiss Lutz, we have gained a leading law firm as a strategic partner – a firm that is broadly diversified and will help us expand and enhance the services we provide to our members. We are looking forward to the cooperation!"
