FGvW is once again among the top 50 German Commercial Law Firms

Every year, the JUVE publishing house publishes a handbook of commercial law firms, in which all German commercial law firms are critically analyzed and rated. The ranking is based on extensive research at law firms, corporate executives, representatives of public authorities and employees in judiciary and science. Of the 629 law firms listed in the new edition of the JUVE handbook, Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner (FGvW) is once again among the top 50.

Our firm is especially mentioned in the practice areas Product Liability and Insurance Law, Corporate Law and M&A, Trademark and Competition Law, and Distribution Systems.

Our Cologne office is awarded an “outstanding competence” in the area of manager liability and product liability. According to JUVE, FGvW partners Tobias Lenz and Björn Fiedler are “2 nationwide renowned experts in the field of manager liability and cross-border product liability cases.” Our Cologne team belongs to the top 10 in the practice area Liability and Insurance Law and also belongs to the “most renowned D&O and product liability specialists”.
In the areas Corporate Law and M&A, JUVE mentions that “the work of the Freiburg M&A lawyers is more international than that of many large law firms, due to their excellent network. FGvW is present beyond the German borders to an extent that many competitors envy them for.” The clear focus on international mid-cap-deals is especially mentioned and believed to be responsible for the “development towards ever more attractive deals”, such as advising stock-exchange listed companies with regard to stock corporation law and capital markets. JUVE also mentions the specialist focus on compliance-due-diligence in connection with business acquisitions, as well as advising companies with regard to the structure of their international subsidiaries from a liability law point of view.

In addition, the Distribution Law team with Christian Genzow as a “leading name in Distribution Law”, the team for Trademark and Competition, as well as the practice areas Employment Law, Private Construction Law, Administrative Law and Procurement Law are especially mentioned.

The FGvW partners Morton Douglas, Björn Fiedler, Christian Genzow, Arnt Göppert, Norbert Hebeis, Sven Köhnen, Carsten Laschet, Tobias Lenz, Gerhard Manz, Barbara Mayer, Christian E. Ostermann, Hans-Georg Riegger, Wolfgang Schmid, Hendrik Thies and Stefan Zipse are “frequently recommended”.
