German business daily Handelsblatt has recognised acclaimed attorneys and law firms in its Best Lawyers ranking. This is already the fourteenth time the publisher has honoured the best attorneys of the year in their respective legal fields. We are particularly pleased that Handelsblatt included eleven PLUTA attorneys in three areas of specialisation this year.
The editorial team recognised the services of restructuring experts Mr Michael Pluta, Dr Maximilian Pluta, Mr Torsten Gutmann, Mr Sebastian Laboga, Mr Stefan Meyer, Dr Stephan Thiemann, Dr Hubertus Bartelheimer, Mr Stephan Ammann and Dr Martin Prager in the area of restructuring and insolvency law. Among the especially frequently recommended colleagues, Dr Karl von Hase was named in the area of arbitration/dispute resolution/mediation and Mr Tillman de Vries in the area of conflict resolution. All eleven attorneys have extensive professional experience and have already worked for PLUTA for several years.
For this award, the US publisher Best Lawyers identified Germany’s top attorneys exclusively for Handelsblatt based on an extensive peer-to-peer process. A comprehensive survey of attorneys is crucial to the selections made by the Best Lawyers experts. The idea underpinning the process is that attorneys themselves are the best judge of their colleagues’ excellence in particular legal fields.
Founder and Managing Partner Mr Michael Pluta said, “It’s always special to receive an award directly from your own industry and colleagues. And it’s not every day that a firm’s expertise is recognised a full eleven times in a prestigious ranking. I’m delighted for PLUTA and all of my colleagues and would like to thank everyone within the PLUTA team for their consistently outstanding work.”
Further awards for PLUTA
In May, the restructuring company received another welcome award: PLUTA was recommended in the area of insolvency and restructuring by well-known business magazine brand eins. Its list of top business law firms was based on a survey of around 2,700 attorneys (survey of colleagues) and in-house legal experts (survey of clients) in a total of 24 legal fields.
Back in February 2022, PLUTA took first place among the law firms listed in the 2021 insolvency administrator ranking produced by WirtschaftsWoche, a leading German business magazine, based on the number of proceedings.
