On behalf of Wirtschaftswoche, the Handelsblatt Research Institute surveyed more than 4,000 lawyers in over 210 law firms. The lawyers were asked to name their most esteemed peers and law firms. The final list was evaluated by an expert panel of judges, who agreed Reed Smith had the leading M&A practice in Germany.

Frankfurt office managing partner Rolf Hünermann and partner Octavio de Sousa were also individually recognised as ‘Top Lawyers 2020’ for their M&A work.

Delphine Currie, co-chair of Reed Smith’s Global Corporate Group, commented: “I’m delighted for Rolf, Octavio and the German team. They all provide the very best possible service to our clients operating in the region, ensuring we can support them in achieving their business goals. The accolades are hugely deserved.”
