We are happy for our colleague from our Hamburg office for this special award.
The US publishing house “Best Lawyers” establishes exclusively the Handelsblatt the most prestigious legal advisors. The ranking has been determined on the basis of peer-to-peer-surveys. In these surveys lawyers only are asked about the reputation of their competitors. The main aim is to nominate colleagues outside from one’s own law firm. Those surveyed are asked on a hypothetical basis which competitor they would recommend in case they could not accept a case due to lack of time or in case of a conflict of interest.
Only those who are recommended particularly often by competitors are awarded “lawyer of the year 2016”.
