News from 29.07.16

In litigation continuing over several years, a former board member of the Heinz-Breuninger Foundation had sued the current family owners, Willem van Agtmael and Dr. Wieland Meilicke. The former board member demanded an interest of €220 million in the Breuninger department store chain.
After extensive testimony from witnesses, the Higher Regional Court of Stuttgart has now rejected the claims in clear language. Mr. van Agtmael was represented in the matter by our corporate law partners Dr. Roderich C. Thümmel and Jens Haubold.
