HEUSSEN: Among the best law firms in public procurement law at WirtschaftsWoche
For the second time since 2014, WirtschaftsWoche (WiWo) has selected Germany's top law firms and top lawyers for public procurement law - an area in which EU-wide invitations to tender for public contracts amount to more than two trillion euros per year, in Germany alone more than 440 billion euros. This makes it even more important to find out which law firms and lawyers in Germany have earned a first-class reputation through their practical work.
As in 2014, the procurement law practice of HEUSSEN and its Partner Uwe-Carsten Völlink are among the top players in 2018 as well.
In cooperation with the Handelsblatt Research Institute (HRI), WiWo evaluated the experts according to a complex procedure: First, the HRI drew up a list of 479 procurement lawyers from 65 law firms. They were asked to name their five most renowned colleagues, although of course they were not allowed to name themselves. The resulting list was presented to a jury of experts, who evaluated the lawyers and law firms mentioned and added other experts. Finally, the HRI again weighted the answers from the survey and the jury round, resulting in a list of the 51 leading public procurement law firms and 71 lawyers who were particularly often recommended.
Public procurement law has been a high priority at HEUSSEN for years. HEUSSEN's competence in public procurement law has been recognized by all relevant legal publications, as have individual partners who are among the leading public procurement lawyers in Germany. A team of four partners in Munich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt/Main as well as other experienced attorneys advise public clients and companies in national and EU-wide procurement procedures, represent them in review proceedings and compensation proceedings. One focus is in the area of defence & security, where, for example, leading corporations are supported in public procurement law projects. In the public sector, HEUSSEN advises universities, research institutions as well as municipalities and their associated companies. A further focus is on the provision of services of general interest, e.g. in the case of new clinics, where the market also highly appreciates the expertise in interfaces with construction law.
