Pusch Wahlig Workplace Law wins German Employment Law Firm of the Year 2017

L&E Global is proud to announce that our member firm in Germany, Pusch Wahlig Workplace Law, was awarded “Employment Law Firm of the Year” by JUVE at the Alte Oper Frankfurt on 26 October 2017. Law firms and in-house teams that distinguished themselves this year with their expertise, strategic and service focus and future potential were honored in 18 categories at the event.

The decision by the JUVE journalists to honor Pusch Wahlig Workplace Law as “Employment Law Firm of the Year” is based on their “impressive development”. The law firm is characterized by “a clever expansion, international ambitions and strategic foresight”. In the past year, the firm established a strong location in Frankfurt with Dr. Dirk Freihube and Dr. Holger Thomas and thus strengthened their national presence. Pusch Wahlig Workplace Law continuously “demonstrates their spirit of innovation” and “on an international level, the firm has done an excellent job” by collaborating with the international alliance L&E Global.

“This award means a lot to us,” said Dr. Tobias Pusch, managing partner at Pusch Wahlig Workplace Law. “For us, this is proof of our excellent work and the unique spirit of the whole team. We have dared innovations with the law firm meeting our clients’ and employees’ requirements. The overall positive feedback from the market confirms that we are on the right track.”

The JUVE awards are considered the most prestigious awards in the German legal industry. The basis for the chosen nominees and winners of the JUVE awards is the comprehensive research of the independent editors of the JUVE guide for corporate law firms. This guide has been published since 1999 and is the most comprehensive and detailed reference work in the German legal market.

Pusch Wahlig Workplace Law was honored with the AZUR award 2017 in the category “Diversity” and was named “Top Employment Law Firm” by the German business magazine “Wirtschaftswoche”. The boutique has already been nominated by JUVE as “Labor Law Firm of the Year in Germany” in 2008 and 2011 as well as for the “Founding Period Award” 2009. Since 2013, the law firm has been honored as a “Top Commercial Law Firm” by FOCUS.

The recognition bestowed upon Pusch Wahlig Workplace Law by JUVE is a testament to L&E Global’s strategic promise to, through the labour and employment law experts of our member firms, help clients navigate legal and business challenges, both nationally and across borders.
