JUVE Awards 2019: SKW Schwarz is “Law Firm of the Year for Distribution, Trade and Logistics”

Legal publisher JUVE has recognized SKW Schwarz Rechtsanwälte as “Law Firm of the Year for Distribution, Trade and Logistics“.

The current issue of JUVE Handbook for Commercial Law Firms states:

"It is with remarkable consistency that SKW Schwarz developed a distribution law team over the last few years that today can stand up to any comparison with renowned competitors (...). Starting out from the historically strong arbitration practice in Hamburg, the practice excels among others in dispute-related advice and representation. (...) At the same time, the practice succeeds in convincingly addressing classic sales issues, thereby significantly broadening its client base. The team skillfully applies its expertise at the interface to transport and freight forwarding law (...). Strategically, it also proved useful for the team to include a highly visible lawyer specializing in customs and foreign trade law issues, which puts the practice at a clear advantage, particular for the increasing number of cross-border cases".

The editorial staff also praises the team‘s “particularly successful use of cross-office and interdisciplinary collaboration for advising in sales law.”

“We are very pleased to see that the continual development of our distribution law practice is being perceived so positively in the market and has now also been rewarded with recognition as Law Firm of the Year,“ said Oliver Korte, Head of the Commercial and Distribution Practice Group and Partner at SKW Schwarz in Hamburg. “We have been able to significantly expand our client activities in recent years in trade, distribution, customs, and foreign trade law, especially in assisting our clients with cross-border activities.”

In Commercial and Distribution, SKW Schwarz is operating with a core team of six specialized lawyers. Advice and representation in disputes are gaining increasing importance.

Every year, the editors of JUVE Handbook of Commercial Law Firms research developments in numerous fields of law and regions and award “Law Firm of the Year” prizes in 35 categories. As part of the research, several thousand lawyers, in-house counsel, and judges are surveyed. The awards are considered the most important recognitions in the German legal market.
