For the lists of the best German employment and corporate lawyers the Handelsblatt Research Institute (HRI) interviewed more than 4000 lawyers in 245 law firms about their most renowned colleagues. The list was then presented to an expert jury, which filtered out 54 law firms with 86 particularly recommended lawyers. In labor law, Silvio Fricke (Federal Association of Labor Lawyers in Companies) and Ulrich Goldschmidt (Association for Specialists and Managers) voted, in corporate law Claas Westermann (RWE) and Alexander Zumkeller (ABB), in both areas Martin Schlag (Thyssenkrupp) and Achim Schunder (C.H. Beck).
