Gibson Dunn Adds Former Prosecutor Ralf van Ermingen-Marbach in Munich

November 5, 2018

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP is pleased to announce that Ralf van Ermingen-Marbach has joined the firm as of counsel in the Munich office.  Van Ermingen-Marbach’s addition continues the expansion of Gibson Dunn’s German compliance and white collar practice.

With his experience as a former prosecutor, van Ermingen-Marbach will complement the firm’s German team, which draws lawyers from both Frankfurt and Munich and was recently strengthened with the addition of white collar partner Finn Zeidler to the Frankfurt office last year.

“We are delighted to welcome Ralf to our team,” said Benno Schwarz, a White Collar Defense and Investigations partner in the Munich office. “Ralf’s broad and deep experience in white collar matters and his decade-long experience as prosecutor adds significant value for our clients.  His addition will expand our white collar and compliance offering in Germany, as well as complement our premiere global litigation and white collar defense practice.”

Van Ermingen-Marbach’s practice focuses on internal investigations and the representation of corporations and individuals facing charges of criminal conduct.  He has experience representing companies from the technology, banking, and engineering industries, as well as sovereign funds and high-profile individuals.

Prior to joining the firm, he practiced at Hengeler Mueller’s Duesseldorf office since 2017. Before that, he was a prosecutor at the district attorney’s offices in Moenchengladbach and Duesseldorf from 2006 to 2017, where his practice covered a wide range of corporate criminal law, including corporate fraud, embezzlement, corruption, money-laundering, market manipulation and tax fraud.  During his tenure, he also focused on international legal assistance, cooperating with international enforcement offices on enforcement matters, and on confiscation and asset recovery cases.  During that time, he also served as a consultant in parliamentary investigative committees (Untersuchungsausschuss).  He ended his public service with two years at the Duesseldorf District Attorney’s Office, which handles large and international corporate criminal law cases that exceed the experience and resources of the various other district attorney offices in the State of North-Rhine Westphalia.
