"Germany's Best Lawyers": Best Lawyers and Handelsblatt award title to 13 Eversheds Sutherland Lawyers

  • Germany


    13 Eversheds Sutherland lawyers have been named by the US specialist publisher Best Lawyers this year as the most renowned lawyers in their respective fields. With six lawyers newly included in the ranking, the firm has been able to double its result compared to the previous year.

    The list of recommended lawyers, which is compiled exclusively for the Handelsblatt, is based on a comprehensive peer-to-peer-survey amongst lawyers who provide assessments of their colleagues' professional skills and thus confirm the high reputation of the lawyers listed in the ranking.

    The Eversheds Sutherland lawyers, who are based in Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Munich, achieve a total of 15 mentions in ten areas of law. The numerous recommendations in the areas of real estate and M&A deserve a particular mention. Furthermore, the firm was recommended in the areas of employment and labour law, construction law, IT law, corporate law, antitrust law, outsourcing, private equity and litigation.

    The following lawyers are specifically recommended as leading experts by the Handelsblatt and Best Lawyers:

    Frank Achilles – Labour and employment law, Munich
    Martin Bechtold – Antitrust law, Munich and Brussels
    Dr. Frederik Foitzik – Litigation, Munich
    Dr. Stefanie Fuerst – Real estate law, Hamburg
    Annette Griesbach – Real estate law, Hamburg
    Dr. Johannes Grooterhorst – Real estate law, Dusseldorf
    Dr. Matthias Heisse – M&A and Private Equity, Munich
    Dr. Steffen Jung – Construction law, Munich
    Dr. Rolf Kowanz – Labour and employment law, Hamburg
    Christof Lamberts – M&A, Munich
    Dr. Christian Mense – Corporate law, Munich
    Dr. Christophe Samson – M&A, Munich
    Dr. Lutz Schreiber – IT law and outsourcing, Hamburg

    Dr. Matthias Heisse, Managing Partner Germany, comments:

    "The inclusion in the Best Lawyers ranking is a great tribute to the outstanding achievements and expertise of our lawyers. Furthermore, it confirms our steady growth across practice groups and office locations throughout Germany. This result motivates and encourages us to resolutely pursue our strategy."
