Best Lawyers / Handelsblatt recommends a total of 90 lawyers from DLA Piper in Germany

This year, the U.S. publisher Best Lawyers has once again recognized numerous DLA Piper lawyers in Germany in various areas of law. In total, Best Lawyers recommends 90 DLA Piper lawyers this year. Last year, there were a total of 88.

73 lawyers were recommended in their individual areas of law and 17 young lawyers were named in the "Ones to Watch" category. In total, 13 lawyers were recognized for the first time. In addition to the individual recommendations, three partners were named Lawyer of the Year. These included partners Guido Kleve (Cologne) for European Union Law, Dr Kai Bodenstedt (Hamburg) for Employee Benefits Law and Dr. Thomas Gädtke (Munich) for Product Liability Litigation.

The ranking, which was made exclusively for Handelsblatt, is based on an extensive peer-to-peer research, where only lawyers are asked about the reputation of their competitors. The U.S. publisher Best Lawyers is considered the market leader in the U.S. for evaluating lawyers. Recommendation lists of the best lawyers have been published in the US for over 25 years. For the 14th time, Best Lawyers has compiled a ranking of the best German lawyers in more than 60 areas of law exclusively for Handelsblatt.
