40 professionals ranked in Handelsblatt/Legal Success – Best Lawyers®

The renowned American publisher Best Lawyers® annually announces a list of the top commercial lawyers all over the world in 40 commercial law and tax practice areas. The research team interviews distinguished experts and colleagues for their recommendations on which lawyers outside their own firms to whom they would refer work, if they could not take on the client themselves. These results form the basis for a publication in the German newspaper Handelsblatt.

As “Lawyer of the Year 2024/2025” in their region, Munich partner Dr. Michael Inhester was honored for his outstanding venture capital advice, and, once again, his colleague Amos Veith in Berlin for his excellent expertise in the area of investment funds.

In addition, four “Ones to Watch” lawyers were included this year. This award is in recognition of attorneys who have stood out early in their careers for outstanding professional performance. These include counsels Dr. Marcus Niermann (Berlin) and Dr. Marcel Duplois (Frankfurt) for their outstanding advice in tax law and trust and succession planning, as well as Munich-based counsel Daniel Zhu for his above-average competence in the areas of corporate law, mergers and acquisitions and private equity. In addition, senior associate Angelina Seelbach was nominated for her impressing expertise in private equity and mergers and acquisition.

In total, 40 POELLATH attorneys and tax advisors are listed in the current Germany edition for their expertise, many of them repeatedly and mostly in more than one practice area.

The following attorneys have been selected as the best attorneys in their areas of expertise:
