KPMG Law honored with PMN Management Award for Covid 19 information campaign
KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH has won this year’s Professional Management Network (PMN) Award in the Business Development category for its information campaign around the Covid 19 pandemic.
At the twelfth PMN Management Awards, KPMG Law was awarded first place in the Business Development category. Mathias Oberndörfer, Managing Director of KPMG Law, accepted the award at the gala ceremony on September 24, 2020 at the Villa Kennedy in Frankfurt am Main.
First place was awarded for the information campaign on legal issues surrounding Covid-19. When it became clear at the beginning of the year that Covid-19 would develop into a pandemic and affect all areas of life and business, KPMG Law’s Corona Task Force put a Covid-19 website on the most important legal issues online in German and English as early as March 5. These include topics on employment law, commercial and contract law, data protection law, compliance/corporate organization, public law and insurance law.
In addition to the website, the task force developed a wide range of information:
In its laudatory speech, the jury emphasized that the offering was designed to be free of charge and universally accessible from the outset and throughout. “We were all about first aid in legal matters,” said KPMG Law Managing Director Oberndörfer, explaining the approach. “Many companies were confronted with the same questions in the first weeks and months of the pandemic. Here, we wanted to provide a quick initial orientation, and the many positive responses have further confirmed us in this.”
