Best Lawyers is one of the leading international recommendation portals for lawyers in business law. Only lawyers who have been recommended by other already listed professional colleagues in an elaborate procedure are included in the rankings. This ensures a high degree of reliability of the recommendation lists. In Germany, the rankings have been published exclusively by business publication Handelsblatt (German only) for many years.

Again, we are very happy about this success for FGvW and would like to thank everyone who contributed to it!
