Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, one of Germany’s major law firms, has won first place in the Legal Tech category of the 2022 PMN Management Awards.

The award was presented at the PMN Awards Gala on September 22, 2022, in the presence of over 100 guests from leading law firms. Director of Legal Tech & Digitalization Rahel Skau accepted the award on behalf of her team in the ballroom of the Senckenberg Institute in Frankfurt.
In its laudation, the jury emphasized: "[…] No tool convinces as comprehensively as ‘WhistleFox’ by Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek. It is immediately apparent that, in addition to the technicians, experienced practitioners from the areas of compliance, labor law and criminal law worked together in the development: User-friendliness meets pragmatism. Thus, the use of ‘WhistleFox’ should not only avoid additional costs, but also help companies to keep their digital reporting channels efficient and lean. […] At the same time, ‘WhistleFox’ offers users a clear, legally compliant solution."
"We congratulate our Legal Tech team and are happy and proud to have won this award! It recognizes our strategic development of the division over the past two years and means that the team have set a benchmark for the industry with their work right from the start. This is an extraordinary achievement. For us, this success is a further incentive to bring our manifold client-facing digitization projects to the finish line with the same vigor, professionalism and excellence," says Dr. Johan Schneider, Managing Partner for Organization, Business Processes and Digitalization.
The high-caliber, independent jury of former managing partners or business service managers of law firms and experienced business journalists discussed and evaluated all applications in advance and selected the finalists and winners. A nomination must meet high standards: The projects submitted must be innovative, set a benchmark for the industry and contribute to the business success of the law firm. The awards are highly respected in the industry and are a testament to the innovation and professionalism of the winning law firms.
