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.

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.
