Schalast opened its fifth office in Stuttgart on January 1, 2021. The main part of the Derpa Bender Sigler office there around Wolfgang Sigler and Dr. Niklas J. Schreiner decided to take this step in order to be able to offer their clients an even broader range of individual and international expertise with a "full service" approach. The two office heads support as partners - as in Hamburg Dr. Markus Schuback - the Schalast Corporate/M&A team, which is headed by Gregor Wedell. Their focus is on medium-sized clients, particularly in the electrical industry, machine tool manufacturing, electrical engineering and automotive and media sectors. In addition to Wolfgang Sigler and Dr. Niklas J. Schreiner, Prof. Joachim Ritter von Strobl-Albeg and Christian Ritter von Strobl-Albeg also moved to Schalast's Stuttgart office.
