Freshfields' Vienna-based IP/IT Partner Bertram Burtscher is part of the firm's global team advising Volkswagen AG as IP/IT, Antitrust and CFIUS counsel on its proposed USD 2.6 billion co-investment in the autonomous vehicle technology company Argo AI with the Ford Motor Co.

According to Freshfields, "the transaction contemplates a capital infusion into Argo AI by VW and the merger of VW’s own Autonomous Intelligent Driving into Argo AI."

Burtscher co-led the Freshfields' team with New York-based Partner Menachem Kaplan and Associate Marissa Yu, Dusseldorf-based Partner Martin Klusmann, Berlin-based Principal Associate Miriam Geiss and Associate Ilka Mauelshagen, and Washington D.C.-based Partner Aimen Mir.
