For the 15th time and exclusively for the Handelsblatt Group, Best Lawyers has determined the most renowned legal advisors in Germany on the basis of a peer-to-peer procedure. For the purposes of this procedure, participation in the survey was limited to lawyers who were asked for their opinion on the professional skills of their competitors. Best Lawyers is considered the US market leader in lawyer ratings. These Rankings have a long tradition in the US and Best Lawyers has been publishing the lists for over three decades, starting in 1983.
