TOP 5 Kanzlei Datenschutzrecht

Top 5 Datenschutzrecht

TOP 5 Compliance

KINAST Rechtsanwälte are highly recommended by in-house lawyers and are among the top 5 data protection law firms in Germany.

This is shown by the study “kanzleimonitor.de – Recommendation is the best reference”. Every year, the Kanzleimonitor provides a comprehensive ranking of the 100 most frequently recommended lawyers and law firms. This overview is intended to serve corporate lawyers in all industries as a selection criterion for mandating commercial law firms.

In the area of data protection law (subject areas: Collection & Exploitation of Information, Telecommunications, Data Processing, Cloud Computing, Social Media), we have regularly been able to achieve top rankings (5th place, 6th place and 3rd place) among the 100 law firms listed over the past three years. This allows KINAST to maintain its position in the top group in data protection law alongside numerous large law firms.

Several of our attorneys are also regularly named in the list of direct personal recommendations, currently Kristin Bauer, Dr. Karsten Kinast and Benjamin Schuh.

Furthermore, we also received recommendations in the area of compliance (topics: Legal Compliance, Ethical Compliance, Establishing a Compliance Organization).

With the recommendations in data protection law and in the area of compliance, KINAST is among the top 100 law firms in Germany overall. We are particularly pleased about the positive result in this study, as this is a transparent evaluation from the client’s circle and the ranking is done by the firm’s own professional group of lawyers. We thank you for all recommendations!
