WilmerHale was recently recognized as a top law firm in Germany and the United States by kanzleimonitor.de 2015/2016, a survey of the German Federal Association of in-house counsel (Bundesverband der Unternehmensjuristen e.V.). WilmerHale was named the 31st most recommended law firm in Germany and first in the United States, a result of the close cooperation among WilmerHale lawyers worldwide. This is the third edition of the kanzleimonitor.de survey, which is the first empirical study in Germany to focus solely on recommendations from in-house counsel.
Survey participants were also asked to recommend German firms and lawyers by industry and practice. In addition to recommendations in eight other practice areas, WilmerHale ranked second in the aviation industry. Partner Martin Braun merited individual recognition in the field of data protection.
The survey was far-reaching, with in-house counsel from 700 companies in various industries taking part. Overall, more than 7,000 law firm and lawyer recommendations were made across 31 practice areas.
