In the words of Andreas Okonek, Chairman of the Management Committee of Redeker Sellner Dahs, on this year's ranking: “We are delighted that three Redeker lawyers have been conferred the honour of “Lawyers of the Year”. We also view the consistently excellent performance of our colleagues in the ranking – in a total of 25 fields of practice – as confirmation of the outstanding work that we have consistently been performing for our clients for many years. Both in terms of the depth of our counsel and advice in individual subject matters as well as in the range of fields of practice”.

US publisher Best Lawyers© compiles an annual list of German lawyers in various fields of law recommended by colleagues exclusively for Handelsblatt. The participants are asked which colleagues they would recommend outside their own law firm if they were unable to handle a client or case themselves due to time constraints or a conflict of interest. The results are published in Handelsblatt every summer.
