The US publisher Best Lawyers identifies, in a large peer-to-peer method exclusively for the “Handelsblatt”, the most prestigious legal advisors in Germany. Within this method exclusively lawyers are asked about the reputation of their competitors. The main question is, which colleague they would recommend outside the own team, if the mandate would be refused for reasons of time or because of a conflict of interests.
