BBH and other law firms found the Federal Association of Commercial Law Firms (BWD)

The newly founded Federal Association of Commercial Law Firms in Germany (Bundesverband der Wirtschaftskanzleien in Deutschland – BWD) already brings together more than 30 law firms with offices in Germany. Becker Büttner Held (BBH) not only is one of the founding members, BBH partner Prof. Dr. Ines Zenke also is a board member of the association.

BWD is the first independent association in Germany that represents the interests of law firms as institutions.

“BWD fills a gap in the German association landscape and gives commercial law firms in Germany a unified voice. I look forward to shaping this association together with my colleagues on the board and the member firms and making our voice heard,” says BBH partner and BWD board member Prof. Dr. Ines Zenke.

Becker Büttner Held is a leading provider of advisory services for energy and infrastructure companies and their customers. Energy and supply companies, particularly public utilities, municipalities and local authorities, industrial companies and international groups are among its core clients. BBH advises these and many other companies and organisations in all legal matters and also assists them with business and strategic advice.
