For the first time ever we have produced a Germany-specific edition: Who’s Who Legal: Germany 2012, featuring over 700 practitioners based in Germany, across 30 practice areas. The country’s economy has not been unaffected by the European debt crisis, but our inaugural research has uncovered a combination of domestic leaders, international heavyweights and niche boutique practices that make its legal market particularly dynamic and interesting. We have canvassed and analysed the opinions of law firm clients and private practitioners worldwide, and what is clear is the high regard in which the talented and highly impressive German bar is held.

Despite the financial turbulence, a constant is that Germany’s actions and reactions to global events are watched closely by the rest of the world. The biggest economy in the EU and the fourth largest in the world by nominal GDP, its importance in the international arena is unquestionable.
