ARQIS has been nominated in three categories at this year’s Euromoney Legal Media Group Europe Women in Business Law Awards. Managing Partner and labor law lawyer Dr. Andrea Panzer-Heemeier is nominated in the category “Best in labour & employment”. Furthermore, the law firm is nominated in the categories “Best firm in Germany” and “Best national firm for talent management”.
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in London on June 14, 2018. The best lawyers are honored in a total of 38 legal areas. In addition, prizes will be awarded to the best law firms in 32 different countries and in 15 superordinate categories, which include individual initiatives such as talent management.
“The nominations once again highlight our outstanding market position,” says Dr. Andrea Panzer-Heemeier. “We advise medium-sized companies and large corporations at the highest level at a total of three locations, but also ensure flat hierarchies and development opportunities for all our employees.”
Dr. Andrea Panzer-Heemeier was appointed managing partner of the law firm this January. The position was newly created in the law firm. The founding partner also heads a 12-person labor law team at ARQIS.
ARQIS has a respectable female quota of around 30 percent among lawyers, and the proportion of women among partners is 25 percent. The azur editorial team of JUVE Verlag determined in 2016 that ARQIS also has one of the most multicultural teams in the German commercial law firm market. The proportion of lawyers with a migration background is over 25 percent.
