WirtschaftsWoche: Eversheds Sutherland among the top law firms for compliance and commercial criminal law – Joos Hellert and David Rieks particularly recommended

  • Germany


    The German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche recognised Eversheds Sutherland as top legal practice for compliance and commercial criminal law in Germany. According to the business magazine, the top lawyers in their areas of expertise include two lawyers from the legal practice: Joos Hellert (Munich) is represented in the ranking list of the "most renowned compliance lawyers" and David Rieks (Hamburg) is particularly frequently recommended for commercial criminal law by the experts interviewed.

    With regard to crisis advice and sanction risks, Eversheds Sutherland advises in all phases of compliance: from preventive advice on how to avoid criminal and regulatory offence allegations, to the support with internal investigations, to the defence against prosecution and supervisory authorities. The strength in the area of cross-border investigations and proceedings is also reflected in the results: Of the 62 law firms included in the ranking list of the best law firms for commercial criminal law, only four other internationally positioned law firms are represented besides Eversheds Sutherland.

    The Handelsblatt Research Institute (HRI) interviewed more than 1,000 compliance lawyers and commercial criminal law experts from 150 law firms for the ranking. The final selection was made by an expert jury of representatives from Bosch, RWE, ThyssenKrupp, ZF Friedrichshafen and C.H. Beck. This year, the lists of recommendations include a total of 42 law firms with 57 particularly recommended lawyers for compliance as well as 62 law firms with 95 particularly recommended lawyers for commercial criminal law.

    Other Eversheds Sutherland Partners that are represented in current ranking lists of top lawyers of WirtschaftsWoche are Alexander Niethammer (Munich) for IT and Christian Hilpert (Berlin) for restructuring.
