Handelsblatt Ranking “Best Lawyers 2021”: Kather Augenstein Rechtsanwälte are once again among the best in Germany this year

In the 13th edition of the rating “Germany’s Best Lawyers”, published by the German economic newspaper Handelsblatt in an exclusive cooperation with the US publisher Best Lawyers, all five partners were recommended as Best Lawyers in the category Intellectual Property this year. Congratulations to:

The “Best Lawyers” nominations are based on a peer-to-peer survey in which business lawyers are asked which competitors they can recommend. Best Lawyers is one of the oldest lawyer rankings and is highly regarded by clients and lawyers in the legal profession.

Dr Christof Augenstein says about the latest award: “We are very delighted that all our partners at Kather Augenstein have been listed in the league of Best Lawyers in Germany this year and thus in the Handelsblatt ranking of Germany’s Best Lawyers 2021. This confirms that our sustainable path is the right one, our clients can continue to build on these successes in the future”.

For me, the honour is a great sign of our engagement, both for our team and for our clients”, said Miriam Kiefer.
