Evaluation criteria

The Law Firm of the Year designations are based on the law firms' overall performance in a given practice area. Lawyers and law firms are assessed based on a number of factors and criteria that are examined in detail. The evaluation consists of two parts: the first part consists of a questionnaire to be filled out by the firms and the second part results from the opinion of the evaluators, each part counting 50 % towards the evaluation.

Firstly, participating law firms had to complete a questionnaire to obtain an overview of individual transactions they have been working on. The focus lies on legal complexity, difficulty, international elements, social impact, relevance to local justice and legislation. In the second part, the evaluators, persons from institutions outside the legal area such as representatives of major sponsors, investment banks and auditing firms have been working according to their own methodologies with a deep knowledge of the market and years of experience.

The factors and criteria by which lawyers and law firms are assessed focus on professional skills, knowledge and experience relevant for the specialization and jurisdiction, understanding client needs and problems of the area of ​​its business, flexibility and responsiveness, process standards and significance of the transactions. 

The aim of the competition is to highlight the importance of expertise in providing legal services, and thus contribute to the strengthening of legal certainty.
