  • Germany


    The German magazine WirtschaftsWoche has once again recognised Eversheds Sutherland. Partners Dr. Werner Brickwedde and Dr. Christian Mense have been listed among Germany's most renowned lawyers for corporate law. Partner Frank Achilles ranks among the top lawyers for employment and labour law. The business magazine Brand Eins also recommends Eversheds Sutherland for these areas in a special edition which was published at the same time.

    For the WirtschaftsWoche ranking, Handelsblatt Research Institute (HRI) interviewed more than 4,900 lawyers from 270 law firms. The final selection was made by an expert jury of representatives from companies and specialist media including ABB, Knorr-Bremse, Osram, RWE, Telefónica, ThyssenKrupp and ZF Friedrichshafen. According to the jury's assessment, 51 law firms with 90 lawyers stood out for corporate law and 61 law firms with 120 especially recommended lawyers for employment and labour law.

    For the special issue of Brand Eins, the market research company Statista interviewed more than 2,500 lawyers working for law firms and in-house. In corporate as well as employment and labour law, 61 particularly recommended law firms are highlighted.
