Legal Trends by Hannes – Episode 1: Handling Parallel Investigations – Case Volkswagen

18 May 2021

Both civil and administrative litigations often arise out of some type of wrongoing or non-compliance. In this episode, we talk to Patrick Schroeder of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Hamburg, Germany about handling the co-ordination of investigation and litigation work following the Notice of Violation of the US Clean Air Act issued by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to Volkswagen AG, Audi AG, and Volkswagen Group of America, Inc in September 2015. Patrick is joined by Hannes Snellman’s Partner Anders Bygglin, and the two will reflect on the dos and don’ts of handling parallel investigations and administrative and civil proceedings.

Legal Trends by Hannes is a podcast focusing on different phenomena and trends in the legal industry. The first season focuses on global litigation trends and is hosted by our experienced dispute resolution lawyers, Partner Anna-Maria Tamminen and Managing Associate Helen Lehto.
