Global law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) has announced the appointment of two new partners in the Hamburg office. By a vote of the partnership, Tonio Sadoni and Dominik Weiss, both formerly counsel, were named partner as of June 1.

Sadoni’s practice encompasses corporate/private M&A, joint ventures and other corporate or private equity transactions. He advises on all aspects of German corporate matters and general commercial law for clients across a number of industries, in particular with respect to complex international transactions, corporate restructurings, as well as company formations.

Weiss advises both national and international companies in all matters of intellectual property law. He has broad litigation experience in the fields of trademarks, design protection and unfair competition law. He assists clients with the registration of German, EU and international trademarks and handles the related trademark prosecution. He also advises companies with regard to transaction-related IP matters and has significant experience representing international clients in complex cross-border disputes. Another focus of his practice is advising clients on a wide range of data privacy, IT and e-commerce matters.

“Both Tonio and Dominik are experienced practitioners with strong reputations in their practices,” said Country Managing Partner Roland Fabian. “Our clients in Germany have come to rely on them, as have all of the lawyers with whom they work. We are pleased that Tonio and Dominik will continue to serve our clients in Germany and across Europe with the highest levels of client service.
