The KUNZ team had several reasons to celebrate at yesterday's presentation of the JUVE Awards 2020/2021:
After the jury of the JUVE Awards had once again awarded KUNZ the title "Law Firm of the Year in the Southwest" last year, KUNZ was nominated this year, along with four other law firms throughout Germany, for the category "Law Firm of the Year for Medium-Sized Businesses". The decisive factor for the nomination was in particular the steady growth of KUNZ and the resulting advancing specialization in all fields of law:
„The Koblenz law firm is making double use of its growth course. The expanded partner team strengthens core disciplines such as corporate and labor law. But other specializations, such as transportation and logistics, are also gaining presence. Kunz is thus increasingly convincing national clients.“
KUNZ had to admit defeat to the colleagues from Hoffmann Liebs in Düsseldorf, whom we would like to congratulate (once again) along these lines.
IIn the regional ranking KUNZ defended its top position in Rhineland-Palatinate/Saarland.
Just one year after the successful merger with Neuhaus Partner last year, KUNZ made the leap to the top in the southwest. This year again, KUNZ was one of only two law firms to receive the best possible rating from the jury of the JUVE publishing house, thus once again putting KUNZ at the top of the list of consultants in Rhineland-Palatinate/Saarland.
Special mention was made of the opening of the Cologne office after the successful merger with Andörfer & Kollegen and the associated opening of new mandates in the railroad sector as well as the creation of interfaces between transport and insurance law on the one hand and medical and insurance law on the other. But also the broad commercial law setup and the existing manpower in corporate law were particularly recognized.
With Georg Kaiser (lawyer for corporate law) and Tim Schwarzburg (lawyer for labor/corporate law), two of our partners are counted among the "leading consultants in Rhineland-Palatinate/Saarland".
„With the JUVE Awards, we are completing an outstanding business year for us, even though in Corona times it may be difficult to assess the year 2020 positively. Within one year, KUNZ was awarded "Law Firm of the Year in the Southwest" and was nominated nationwide as "Law Firm for Medium-sized Businesses" beyond the Southwest. This illustrates the rapid development that we as a law firm have undergone after the mergers. But we were not only able to convince as a law firm; our individual competence teams also achieved outstanding successes and awards in the same period of time: for example, the WirtschaftsWoche awards as TOP law firm for labor law, construction law, corporate law, medical law, public procurement law, as well as environmental and construction planning law, the Focus award as top business law firm for labor law and the Capital award as one of the 20 best law firms for insurance law. More impressively and more frequently competence can hardly be confirmed“, says Dr. Carsten Fuchs, marketing partner of KUNZ.
