Noerr is “Law firm of the Year”

With the opening of offices in London and in Brussels, Noerr impressively underlined its advance to become one of the top European law firms, is how the jury justified the awards. The law firm continuously improved access to renowned major companies and the corporate practice was prominent in high-profile transactions.
