"Germany's Best Lawyers 2020" - FGvW recommended by "Best Lawyers"

Once a year, the US publishing house "Best Lawyers" asks business lawyers about their recommendations of other law firms. The results are now available, and we are delighted with the result: 21 lawyers from our firm are among the "Best Lawyers" in Germany, including seven partners nominated for the first time.

The recommendations are distributed among these specialist areas: Labor law, banking and finance law, construction law, company law, intellectual property law, commercial and distribution law, real estate law, IT law, mergers & acquisitions, public law, planning law, product liability law, arbitration, insurance law and competition law.

For the first time, the following partners of our law firm have been admitted to the "Best Lawyers" circle:

Tom Erdt (real estate law), Frankfurt
Sabine Schröter (labor law), Frankfurt
Werner Bachmann (IT law), Freiburg
Jan Henning Martens (corporate law), Freiburg
Markus Beaumart (real estate law), Cologne
Ben P. Elsner (banking and finance law), Cologne
Arnt Göppert (mergers and acquisitions), Cologne

Once again, as in previous years, the following partners were also recommended:

Morton Douglas (intellectual property, competition law), Freiburg
Christoph Fingerle (labor law), Freiburg
F. Christian Genzow (mergers and acquisitions, commercial and distribution law), Cologne
Andreas Imping (labor law), Cologne
David Kipping (intellectual property), Cologne
Olaf Konzak (public law, planning law), Cologne
Carsten Laschet (product liability law), Cologne
Tobias Lenz (product liability law, corporate law and insurance law), Cologne
Gerhard Manz (corporate law), Freiburg
Barbara Mayer (Corporate Law), Freiburg
Wolfgang Schmid (intellectual property), Freiburg
Uwe Steingröver (real estate law), Cologne
Friedrich Graf von Westphalen (arbitration proceedings), Cologne
Jörn Zons (building law), Cologne

This year, Olaf Konzak was also awarded the title "Lawyer of the Year for Planning Law" in North Rhine-Westphalia.

We are very pleased about this recognition. Best Lawyers is one of the leading international recommendation portals for lawyers in commercial law. The rankings only include lawyers who have been recommended by other professional colleagues already listed in an elaborate procedure. This ensures a high reliability of the recommendation lists. In Germany, the rankings have been published exclusively by Handelsblatt for many years.
