The corporate law boutique Berner Fleck Wettich has been nominated by „JUVE Verlag für juristische Information“ for the JUVE Startup Award 2015 as one of only five law firms in Germany.
The JUVE Awards are considered the most prestigious distinctions in the German legal market. By awarding the Founders Award, JUVE honors the most successful newly established law firms. The decision is based on extensive editorial research JUVE carried out with clients, lawyers and judges.
JUVE states: “A spin-off of associates in Düsseldorf ist not seen every day, and certainly not in the corporate law field. But the three former Hengeler Mueller lawyers have carved out a niche: independent high-end advice on difficult topics about D&O liability. A considerable range of deals for family companies rounds off the picture.”
