In the survey of commercial and in-house lawyers by the news magazine Focus, Seufert again achieved a place in the list of top commercial law firms in Germany. Josef Geislinger and Florian Faus, environmental law partners at Seufert, view the distinction as vindication of the law firm's expansion policy. "Our public law expertise has been highly valued for many years by companies and local authorities dealing with emissions, waste and other very complex environmental issues. At the beginning of 2015 Dr Martin Schröder, the acknowledged construction, environmental and planning law expert joined us as partner. The results of the independent Focus survey show that our expertise is appreciated accordingly in the market."
