The "Legal 500 Germany" ranking 2020/21 was published in mid-January and once again MELCHERS is recognised as a "Leading Law Firm".
The Heidelberg office is ranked in tier 2 for the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region . Particular mention is made of the "very good cooperation between the leading partners and associates" and the "strengthening of the advisory practice in commercial and criminal tax law" through the merger with Compart&Schmidt.
The Frankfurt office in the Frankfurt/Rhine-Main metropolitan region is also again listed in tier 3 despite the high density of law firms and the presence of large international law firms in the region. In particular, the "strengths in data protection advice" and the "international network" are highlighted.
MELCHERS' special expertise in white-collar crime law is recognised by its listing in the category white-collar crime law - advising individuals in tier 4.
In addition to the excellent rating of the firm as a whole, ten of the firm's partners - Dr Andreas Masuch, Dr Carsten Lutz, Hanja Rebell-Houben, Dr Jörg Hofmann, Dr Konrad Schmidt, Dr Norbert Stegemann, Tobias Wellensiek, Dr Dennis Voigt, Dr Bodo Vinnen and Dr Andreas Decker - received the "Recommended Lawyer" award, three more than in the previous year.
The Legal 500 is a renowned ranking of commercial law firms that has been analysing the (international) legal market for decades and recommends lawyers and law firms for the various fields of law. Every year, the editorial team asks companies and in-house lawyers about their experiences with lawyers and law firms.
