Pinsent Masons strengthens compliance practice with experienced white-collar crime hire in Düsseldorf

03 Oct 2018 | 03:56 pm |

International law firm Pinsent Masons has expanded its compliance team, appointing Dr Jochen Pörtge as partner. Dr Pörtge specialises in white-collar crime and will join Pinsent Masons’ office in Dusseldorf on 1 October 2018 from Clifford Chance.

Jochen Pörtge advises and represents companies in connection with white-collar criminal investigations, internal investigations, enforcement, and anti-bribery compliance. Dr Pörtge joined Clifford Chance in 2010, most recently acting as Counsel.

"Compliance and addressing the consequences of non-compliance are priority areas for our clients. We're seeing criminal law risks play a much more significant role due to new regulations and international standards, and a hardening approach by law enforcement agencies in the sphere of corporate conduct and increased co-ordination by the German and overseas authorities. Jochen Pörtge's focus on white collar investigations is a complimentary addition to our team and follows the recent appointment of Eike Grunert in Munich to our corporate compliance practice." says Rainer Kreifels, Head of Germany at Pinsent Masons.

Dr Thorsten Volz, Head of the Energy Practice and Head of Düsseldorf Office adds: "We are very pleased that Jochen Pörtge brings a wealth of experience with energy companies; a specialist sector for our Düsseldorf presence.”
