"This edition brings together the insight, expertise and wisdom of some of the world's foremost German lawyers in a single book. Through thousands of votes and nominations in the course of our research, the market has identified those listed within as being among the very best in the world in their field, without exception. Their names are ubiquitous in their own legal spheres and, in many cases, transcend them.
Who's Who Legal has been researching legal markets since 1996 and now covers 34 practice areas and over 160 countries. Entry into our guides, is, of itself, no easy feat, with fewer than half of those nominated obtaining a listing. The bar to be considered a "Thought Leader" is even higher: only those listed lawyers who obtained the highest number of nominations from peers, corporate counsel and other market sources in our most recent research cycle were considered."
