In the current JUVE-Handbuch Wirtschaftskanzleien 2021/2022 Pohlmann & Company is again rated with four stars in the area of “Compliance Investigations”. Hardly any other law firm stands “so much for international strategic advice”.
This is due, among other things, to the firm’s long-standing involvement in monitorships, but the team’s commitment, which also includes other professions, is much broader. This is one of the reasons why competitors attest to the firm’s “amazing market penetration with a small team. The team is renowned for risk analyses, partly with its own IT tools, and the resulting measures, up to and including directors’ and officers’ liability suits. The team is also regularly in demand for internal investigations.
In both cases, the “early focus on ESG issues, especially environmental law, is also noticeable. In addition, the team is already benefiting from the increased sensitivity of some companies to pay more attention to health risks as a result of the pandemic. The firm’s specialization in compliance investigations is also reflected in environmental and planning law, which clearly sets Pohlmann & Company apart from its competitors.
Particularly often recommended in the research were: Dr. Andreas Pohlmann (“plays in a league of his own”, competitor), Thomas Lüthi, Nicole Willms (“collegial, top professional”, competitor), Dr. Horst Schlemminger.
