Gleiss Lutz attorney founds own practice
Dr. Ann Marie Welker (39) has left Gleiss Lutz as of July 1, 2008 to found her own law firm, Welker Rechtsanwälte. The specialist for IT law and litigation will continue to advise and represent clients in the area of projects.
Welker was with Gleiss Lutz since 1997, since 2001 as an associated partner. She co-founded and led Gleiss Lutz’ IT practice group. From the beginning she was active in the area of technology-related contracts and won high praise for her successes in project-related litigation. “The 11 years with Gleiss Lutz were a determining and positive factor in my career. I continue to be convinced of the firm’s philosophy, we are still working together on a number of matters,” said Welker. “Over the years I built up networks and know-how that I would like to develop on my own. I look very much forward to the challenge of starting up my own firm.”
