The judges noted that "Swiss Firm of the Year Froriep suffered a blow in 2016 with the loss of one third of its partnership. The judges were impressed by its rapid recovery and reinvention, recognising that it is clearly a firm with ambitious plans and one that is not afraid to lead the market. They could see a clear focus and strategy in play and gave the firm credit for its very high rate of cross-border work and creation of a truly international practice."

The judges were also impressed by Froriep’s establishment of a Disruptive Technologies Practice Group, emphasis on training and its plans to recruit from outside the legal profession.

Froriep's Managing Partner Nicola Benz said: "This award is fantastic recognition of the hard work and forward-looking drive of a great team of people. And we are not stopping here: we continue to strive to be a firm that is fit for the future." 

The Lawyer European Awards have been rewarding and celebrating excellence across the European legal market for eight years. The awards jury consisted of a panel of 21 judges, including managing partners of international law firms and in-house lawyers with multinational companies.
