In a story entitled “Prosecutor’s Darlings,” WirtschaftsWoche’s most recent issue recognized Dr. Susanne Stauder and Dr. André-M. Szesny, LL.M. as top lawyers in Compliance. Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek was again voted one of the top law firms for Compliance.
“The fact that we were awarded again by WirtschaftsWoche shows that our pragmatic and targeted advice is well received by both clients and peers. In our Practice Group, we go to great lengths to increase awareness of managers and companies to the topic of compliance and to accompany them in times of a criminal law crisis,” said Szesny.
Handelsblatt Research Institute surveyed more than 1,300 lawyers from 182 law firms for the ranking. The selected legal professionals were asked to name their most renowned peers, resulting in a list that was evaluated by a jury of experts. The ranking of 36 leading law firms and 56 highly recommended lawyers for the legal field of compliance was now published.
Dr. André-M. Szesny, LL.M., has been practicing as a lawyer since 2005 with a focus on white collar crime and compliance. Joining Heuking in 2008, he is a co-founder of the law firm’s White Collar & Criminal Compliance Practice Group. Dr. Susanne Stauder joined Heuking in 2011 and has been a Salaried Partner since 2017. In addition to advising on compliance, she represents companies and individuals both preventively and in ongoing white collar criminal cases.
