The article reports that General Electric Co. (GE) has hired rising star Andreas Hoffmann from the company Ashurst as part of an ambitious growth strategy for its legal operation in Germany.

The move heralds a shakeup for GE's legal operation in Germany. The finance giant operates discrete legal units for different business lines such as commercial finance, consumer finance and insurance across Europe.
