PLUTA named top corporate law firm for 2021

20 September 2021 · Ulm

German business magazine FOCUS has released its ninth list of top corporate law firms, which recognises the best law offices and attorneys in Germany each year. PLUTA has now been named a ‘Top Corporate Law Firm’ among law offices with a multidisciplinary practice in 2021 for the first time. The corporate law firms mentioned represent the crème de la crème of the industry.

PLUTA has also been named a top law firm in the area of insolvency and restructuring, while restructuring expert Dr Hubertus Bartelheimer has been listed among the best attorneys for insolvency law.

The list of the most successful law firms and attorneys is drawn up on the basis of a multi-stage research process. Research institute FactField GmbH identified the most eminent experts in the area of insolvency and restructuring on behalf of FOCUS. The industry was also surveyed: recommendations from colleagues and corporate lawyers are one of a number of other factors considered as well.

“This award constitutes special recognition of the day-to-day activities of our restructuring experts at PLUTA. Given that colleagues are surveyed, this represents a welcome confirmation from within our own industry,” said Mr Michael Pluta, managing director and founder of PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH.

For the first half of 2021, PLUTA also came out on top in another industry-wide ranking: in terms of the number of opened proceedings in the INDat Report, PLUTA took first place in the list of the top 30 law firms, with 110 proceedings in the half-year statistics.
