Broedermann & Jahn is proud to announce that its senior partner, Professor Dr. Eckart Broedermann, LL.M., has recently been elected as a Vice-Chair of the Hamburg Bar Organization in Germany. Professor Broedermann has been a member of the board of the Hamburg Bar Organization for many years and is a member of the Committee on Private International Law at the level of the Federal Bar Organization which is composed of 28 local Bars; the Hamburg Bar is one of the largest.
The Hamburg Bar Organization is in charge of nearly 10,000 lawyers. It is part of the self-administration of lawyers in Germany which has been endowed by the Hamburg judicial authority with certain powers which, in previous times, had been exercised by the state. The Hamburg Bar is therefore both a representation of the lawyers in their constituency at the federal and international level and the supervising authority that decides the admissions of lawyers, revocations and disciplinary sanctions. The Hamburg Bar is governed by a board of 22 lawyers, half of which are elected every two years. Professor Broedermann was re-elected to the Board in April for a term of 4 years; on Wednesday, May 2nd, Professor Broedermann was then elected as one of the Bar’s three Vice Chairs.
