The biennial prize is offered jointly by the Hans Soldan GmbH, the German Bar Association, the Federal Bar Chamber and the FAZ. The aim of the prize is to draw attention to best practice in the founding of new law firms, identify success factors and encourage potential founders to apply high standards to their start-up project.
