Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has been named Global Law Firm of the Year 2014 in the Who's Who Legal Awards which were announced on 31 March 2014 at the University Club, New York.
This year marks the eighth time Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has been recognised as the Law Firm of the Year in recognition of its leading presence in our worldwide research. The firm achieves a total of 223 listings - more than any other firm - and is also recognised for its outstanding performance in the arbitration, competition and mergers and acquisitions sectors. With lawyers representing 23 of the firm’s offices, Freshfields’ global dominance is “undisputed” yet it remains particularly strong in its home jurisdictions of England and Germany. Frank Montag at the firm is also applauded for his antitrust law practice, earning the title of Competition Lawyer of the Year for the fifth consecutive time.
