Attorney (Germany)
Partner – Cologne

In the fields of litigation and arbitration, Wilhelm focuses on commercial and corporate law disputes, on post-M&A disputes, as well as on disputes relating to long-term agreements. His clients are leading commercial enterprises as well as industrial companies and businesses from the service sector.

Wilhelm, born in 1946, studied law in Bochum and Bonn. After completing his first state examination in Bonn, he did his doctorate at the Institute of Private International Law of the University of Bonn (Prof. Dr. Beitzke).

Wilhelm was a partner with the international law firm Freshfields and its German predecessor for 30 years. He started his career as a corporate lawyer and, later, also advised for many years on all matters pertaining to industrial property rights before he finally decided to completely focus on dispute resolution. After leaving his former law firm Freshfields in 2014, Wilhelm was with the major German full service law firm Luther, prior to joining Andersen Tax & Legal Germany as a founding partner in 2017.
