Nuremberg, Oct. 31, 2016. The integrated professional services firm Rödl & Partner was named ‟Law Firm of the Year” in the category of tax law at this year’s JUVE awards. The prize was awarded by JUVE, a publisher of legal information, on October 27 at the Alten Oper (historic opera house) in Frankfurt, Germany.

Prof. Dr. Christian Rödl, Managing Partner and Chairman of the Management Board at Rödl & Partner, was pleased to note ‟Receiving the award ‛Law Firm of the Year’ 2016 for tax law, and being nominated in 2011 and 2012, is clear evidence of our tax law expertise. For some time, we have purposefully, and in a targeted manner, been further developing our tax law practice with the aim of providing our clients with expert solutions worldwide from a single source. Rödl & Partner benefits from the synergy of its interdisciplinary approach, with close cooperation among all the fields of law as well as the auditing and consulting entities – encompassing all industries and companies, regardless of size, and transcending national borders. Our expertise is currently represented at over 100 offices around the globe. The recognition provided by this JUVE award is good news for our clients, because it means that those who collaborate with Rödl & Partner are in a league of champions.”

Dr. Hans Weggenmann, Managing Partner heading the tax law practice at Rödl & Partner, adds: ‟The JUVE award strengthens and substantiates not only our strategic orientation, but also our daily operations. In the past few years, we’ve focused our efforts on further enhancing our consulting expertise in the areas of compliance and criminal tax law, and also diversified into preventive tax compliance and consulting for family offices, just to name a few examples. This recognition by JUVE strengthens the resolve of Rödl & Partner to continue following this strategy in the coming years.”

In its laudation, JUVE explained the decision, saying ‟Rödl & Partner developed new strengths, thereby enhancing their already widely-respected services for family-owned companies with regard to international tax law. The greatest progress was shown in the area of value-added tax legislation, in which the team led by partner Dr. Heidi Friedrich-Vache increasingly won over large corporate groups by virtue of its expertise. Focusing on the future, Rödl & Partner has clearly developed the prerequisites necessary for its continued expansion. The new head of tax, Hans Weggenmann, has established teams of specialists, thereby giving the practice a significantly more strategic orientation.”

The JUVE awards are considered the industry’s most coveted distinction. The thirteenth annual awards were bestowed in 15 categories, with five law firms nominated in each category. The winners are chosen based on research conducted by the JUVE editorial team for the annual JUVE reference book.
