"Germany's Best Lawyers 2022" - 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: 29 lawyers from our firm are among the "Best Lawyers" in Germany.

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

In Germany, the rankings have been published exclusively by Handelsblatt for many years.
