Hanefeld Rechtsanwälte receives recognition in the latest edition of Who´s Who Legal Germany

Dr. Inka Hanefeld is among the eight most highly regarded lawyers for arbitration and described as „an absolutely brilliant practitioner“, who pays „great attention to cases with an exceptional view of the market“.“ Jan Heiner Nedden „offers strong expertise in cases relating to trade, construction and M&A matters with sources noting that he is „smart and very fast“.“ Dr. Nils Schmidt-Ahrendts „is up and coming“ and his „ability to „think about every little aspect of a case“ is highlighted.

Dr. Inka Hanefeld to speak at Arbitral Women event: “Women in Arbitration and International Law”

Dr. Hanefeld will participate as a panellist at an event organised by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer on 6 December 2018 in Vienna, Austria. Amongst other things, the panel will discuss personal experiences and challenges for women acting in international arbitration, as well as on how to achieve gender parity in international arbitration.

Hanefeld Rechtsanwälte receives recognition in the recently published JUVE Handbuch 2019

The firm has again been endorsed for its work in the area of international arbitration: "With its clear focus on international arbitration, the firm is considered by many to be the "mother of all conflict resolution boutiques. [...] All partners are consistently praised by competitors as arbitrators and party representatives. [...]. With the counsel appointment of Jörn Hombeck, who is already recognized in the market, Hanefeld is also expanding its scope of action more strongly in the area of litigation."

Moreover, Dr. Inka Hanefeld has been named in the recent JUVE ranking amongst the most renowned party representatives in arbitration proceedings, and, together with Jan Heiner Nedden, in the category of the most renowned arbitrators.

Jörn Hombeck, LL.M. promoted to Counsel

We are delighted to announce that senior associate Jörn Hombeck, LL.M. will be promoted to Counsel at Hanefeld Rechtsanwälte as of 1 September 2018 after five years of affiliation with our firm.
