KPMG Law among the TOP 5 in the Law Firm Monitor

KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) ranks 5th in the overall evaluation of TOP 100 law firms in the current law firm monitor of diruj. KPMG Law also dominates the “Top 100 Business Lawyers” category. In the categories of corporate law and M&A, KPMG Law repeatedly takes first place.

KPMG Law was able to place a total of 16 lawyers in the top 100 list, clearly setting itself apart from its competitors. The second-placed company manages only half that, with eight lawyers.

The award-winning attorneys include: Cilem Aksu-Aflatoon, Torge Albrecht, Dr. Matthias Aldejohann, Dr. Rainer Algermissen, Dr. Konstantin von Busekist, Dr. Bernd Federmann, Anne-Kathrin Gillig, Dr. Torsten Göhlert, Miriam Golla, Steffen Lindner, Dr. Nikolaus Vincent Manthey, Alexandra Marchl, Dr. Albrecht Muser, Dr. Christian Nordholtz, Anna Reimann and Inke Reuter.

KPMG Law also performs excellently in the areas of law with the most recommendations. In corporate law, the area of law with the second most recommendations, KPMG Law was able to defend and even improve its first place. We also defended our leading position in M&A.

Dr. Konstantin von Busekist, Managing Partner of KPMG Law and himself again represented on the list of the Top 100 Lawyers, comments:

“Now in its eleventh year, the Kanzleimonitor is once again an indicator of KPMG LAW’s presence in the German and international legal market. Doing well here makes us proud and drives us at the same time – because no one else can judge our work as well as our clients.”

The Law Firm Monitor is being published in its eleventh edition this year. The diruj – German Institute for Legal Departments & Corporate Counsel – conducted the survey for the first time in 2013. This year, more than 900 companies participated in the study, providing a total of more than 9,000 recommendations. The Law Firm Monitor covers 32 areas of law at the interface between law and business. As in previous years, the most important areas of law are, in this order: employment law, corporate law and M&A.
