YPOG awarded "Law Firm of the Year"

Berlin, 30. October 2023 – YPOG was awarded "Law Firm of the Year 2023" at the JUVE Awards last week. The award ceremony took place at Alte Oper in Frankfurt with around 1,000 invited guests.

According to JUVE, YPOG received the Law Firm of the Year award for its modern, technology-open law firm management. The firm's strategic approach increasingly resembles that of leading US deal law firms, which have a particular focus on technology. In addition, it was mentioned that no other law firm gets as many client recommendations and such high praise from competitors.

The firm's fund structuring practice has been explicitly praised. According to JUVE it has "developed brilliantly". The Berlin venture capital team is one of the strongest in the market. The strategic development of individual practice groups has also been particularly emphasized. In this context, JUVE explicitly highlighted the development in the areas of corporate law and M&A.

Co-Managing Partner Benjamin Ullrich, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm: "We were delighted to receive the award. It is a good opportunity to thank our clients for their continued trust and for making this development possible in the first place. As there is always an ambitious team behind such an award, we would like to thank all our colleagues who shape YPOG. And, of course, the award is an incentive and mandate for us to build on this and continue our mission to be one of the leading law firms in our country's digital economy.”

YPOG was also named Law Firm of the Year Germany Region East at this year's JUVE Awards. YPOG was already honored with the Law Firm Start-Up Award by JUVE in 2019 - two years after its foundation.
