Orth Kluth creates new position in Business Development

Orth Kluth has created a new position in business development and recruited Dominic Krohne from the US law firm Squire Patton Boggs. As Director of Business Development & Strategy, he will work with the partnership to further expand the firm's strong market position in Germany, focusing in particular on the expansion of the Berlin office and the area of legal tech.

"We are very much looking forward to working with Dominic Krohne. With him, we have been able to gain an experienced head of business development and are pleased that, through his engagement, we will be able to further advance our firm's goals and growth plans and develop and implement them together with him in the future," commented Düsseldorf partner Philipp Galaske.

One focus in business development will be on the digital and practice-oriented solutions Orth Kluth has already developed for clients. "The firm's innovation in legal tech applications is remarkable and I am very pleased to be able to support the firm in achieving greater market penetration with its existing and future software tools and programmes and in increasing its visibility to potential users across the legal market," commented Dominic Krohne.

With his recruitment, the law firm continues to ambitiously and consistently implement its strategic growth plan. The law firm only moved into larger premises in Berlin's Europacity between the main railway station and the government district in May last year and intends to expand further there.

Dominic Krohne has extensive knowledge of the German and international legal market. For the past 15 years, he has worked for the US law firm Squire Patton Boggs and its British predecessor Hammonds in Berlin. There, as Head of Business Development & Marketing Germany, he led the business development, marketing and communications activities for the three German offices and the global German practice group for almost eight years. He was also an entrepreneur and founder of several start-ups, which he led as managing partner or COO.
