Leading German legal magazine JUVE recognizes Willkie’s outstanding private equity and venture capital work, marks four JUVE award nominations already in five years and having won the award in 2009.
The firm’s Frankfurt Office was recently nominated by JUVE Magazine for the distinction of "Law Firm of Year - Private Equity and Venture Capital." Willkie is the only German firm to achieve this consistent level of recognition from JUVE in the last five years, with the firm earning award nominations and an award win from the leading legal publication for four times in five consecutive years. JUVE annually presents its prestigious "Law Firm of the Year" awards to law firms which, based on their work and market position, have proven to be particularly dynamic in their respective fields of practice and have demonstrated outstanding strategic development, client service and overall potential for future growth and enhancements. The JUVE editorial team bases its nominations and award decisions on insights and impressions culled from several thousand interviews and written surveys of clients, partners, junior lawyers and judges. The winners of this year’s "Law Firm of the Year" honor will be announced on October 25th at the JUVE Awards 2012 gala in Frankfurt, Germany.
