The Lawyer 2016 – Schalast & Partner nominated for two awards

Schalast & Partner has for the second time in succession been nominated for two European Lawyer Awards by the leading British legal industry magazine “The Lawyer”. Schalast & Partner is once again on the shortlist in the categories “Law firm of the year: Germany” and “European Banking & Finance Deal of the year”. The European Awards have been honouring excellent achievements on the European legal services market for many years.

The focus of this year’s jury of top-class independent experts was the international work of the participating firms and the increasing crossborder demands this work has to meet. Firms were thus asked to demonstrate their activities and initiatives in the past year which were aimed at building a profile with international clients and referral partners.

“We are pleased that we have been shortlisted for two awards this year as well. This not only underlines our presence and competitiveness on the German market, but also our increasingly successful network and reputation at international level,” comments Prof. Dr Christoph Schalast. “Together with other well-known firms such as Gleiss Lutz or Noerr, we are eagerly awaiting the awards ceremony at the beginning of March.”

The international network Multilaw, which Schalast & Partner joined in 2010, has also been shortlisted by The Lawyer for an award. This network of law firms which last year achieved ELITE status in the respected ‘Chambers Global Guide’, was successful in being nominated for the new category “Global network of the year”. Also shortlisted for “The European Lawyer Awards 2016” are the Multilaw partner firms Moroglu Arseven in the category “Law firm of the year: Turkey” and  Tuca Zbarcea & Associatii for “Law firm of the year: Romania”.
