JUVE HANDBUCH Wirtschaftskanzleien 2023/2024


2 of the best-known criminal lawyers of their generation set up their own firm in October 2022 and have already strengthened their team with an associate. Corsten, who joined from Kempf Schilling, recently made headlines with the mandate of a manager in the Wirecard trial and with the defense of the company, which had made common cause with the accused senior public prosecutor in Frankfurt. It is remarkable that companies such as Porsche, which he advised alongside Kempf in the past, continue to rely on him. Reichling, former partner at Feigen Graf, is more present in criminal tax law proceedings, for example on cum-ex, but also on issues such as wage tax or in the defense of the former general secretary of the DFB in connection with the World Cup. As both partners have already made a name for themselves in their predecessor law firms and criminal tax law issues in particular have become much more relevant in recent years, they should be able to realize a lot of potential in this constellation.
