DR. EICK & PARTNER

Comment: This recommended firm in insurance opened its ninth location in fall 2017 and now boasts a presence in Berlin. It manages this geographical breadth effectively in that the lawyers develop specific focal points, e.g. a Munich partner specializes in advice on damages abroad, and so other offices refer such instructions largely to him. Eick has now also appointed another partner in this team, as well as in Bochum and Erfurt, e.g. in liability and also property damage and personal injury. But Eick continues to be known for its representation of the public sector on public liability issues at the municipal level and in construction and architects’ disputes.
Strengths: Very good contacts to insurers. Nationwide visibility.
