The Handelsblatt 2017 Rankings of Best Lawyers once again named several partners of METIS “Best Lawyers in Germany." As in previous years, as many as three partners of the firm received honors – Dr. Andreas Rasner (mergers & acquisitions), Dr. Daniel Benkert (employment law), and Dr. Florian Wettner (dispute resolution).
We are particularly pleased that this year the excellent legal services of Dr. Florian Wettner were for the first time recognized not only for the area of litigation, but also for the areas of arbitration/dispute resolution/mediation.
The "Best Lawyers in Germany" award is based on market research conducted each year by the U.S. publisher Best Lawyers for Handelsblatt, the leading business magazine in Germany. German business lawyers are asked which other lawyers they would recommend if they could not accept a case themselves. Dr. Andreas Rasner, Dr. Daniel Benkert, and Dr. Florian Wettnmer were among the German lawyers most named for their respective practice areas.
Dr. Andreas Rasner advises his clients in all matters of corporate, reorganization, and contract law, representing clients in disputes both in and out of court. A special focus of his legal practice are M&A transactions.
Dr. Daniel Benkert specializes in employment law. He represents clients in court as well as in negotiations with works councils or unions. He also advises companies, as well as managing directors, management board members, and supervisory board members on issues arising in the employment context.
Dr. Florian Wettner specializes in national and international litigation and arbitration, handling numerous cases involving capital markets and corporate law. He has extensive experience handling insurance law aspects of complex loss events and third-party liability cases (in particular insurance coverage for D&O liability and other financial damages).
