Others about Dr. Christoph Wolf

Client: “We work with Albrecht Bach, Florian Schmidt-Volkmar and Christoph Wolf. All three are approachable, responsive and great sparring partners. In terms of antitrust law, the three of them are top-notch. But what makes the collaboration very valuable for us is their in-depth knowledge of the automotive industry. They know how the industry works and what is normal and what is not. This creates added value every time, which goes far beyond the purely legal handling of cases.”
