     Listed among the top 25 law firms in the area of IT law in the WirtschaftsWoche

    The German magazine WirtschaftsWoche (WiWo) has selected the top German law firms for the area of information technology. In the opinion of the jury, these are law firms with "a proven record of success, long-standing experience, a strong team and the corresponding specialization".

    The IT practice of Heisse Kursawe Eversheds which is headed by the partner Axel Zimmermann is among the most important 25 German top law firms.

    The WirtschaftsWoche uses a complex procedure for their evaluation. First of all, it was assessed which law firms and lawyers attracted particularly positive attention over the past years based on expert interviews and database researches; 49 law firms and 108 candidates were preselected in this way, which were then submitted for evaluation to 16 leading experts. The experts subsequently recommended 36 law firms, which were again presented to a neutral jury. At the end of the procedure, the jury selected the law firms based on four criteria: proven record of success, long-standing experience, strength of the team, specialization. This is therefore a success for Axel Zimmermann, just as for the whole team which is headed by Dr. Alexander Niethammer in the area of information technology.

    Members of the jury are: Karl Martin im Brahm (executive board dwpbank), Thomas Ochs (CIO at Villeroy & Boch), Prof. Achim Schunder (head of the Frankfurt branch of the publishing house C.H. Beck), Bernd Wagner (CEO at Softline AG), Prof. Felix Hey (managing partner of the publishing house Dr. Otto Schmidt) as well as Roland Trichy (editor-in-chief at WirtschaftsWoche).

    Axel Zimmermann: „It is a great recognition to be recommended by WirtschaftsWoche and at the same time a proof of our excellent work, which the whole team in the IP practice and, in particular, the members of the IT team headed by Dr. Alexander Niethammer are performing every day here at our law firm."
