Professor Dr. Christoph Herrmann, chair of the department for Public and European Law of the University of Passau commented, “Dr. Müller-Ibold comes with extraordinary know-how and experience of EU and international competition and trade law, based on his outstanding career as a practicing lawyer in one of the most renowned law firms worldwide.

Moreover, Passau University is already blessed with an extraordinary faculty, including in particular on EU and international law matters, and I am eager to contribute to the scholarly exchanges in an area of the law that is characterized, as few others, by the need for close interaction of theory and practice.”
