Ranking Hat-Trick achieved: Kinner Korenjak LAW included in JUVE-Ranking

By leaping into the JUVE ranking, Kinner Korenjak LAW scored the hat-trick within half a year of founding the firm: the proven boutique for employment law and its two partners Dr Wolfgang Kinner and Dr Ingrid Korenjak are now represented in three of the most distinguished international law firm rankings. The inclusion in the renowned ranking of “The Legal 500”  in the category “Employment – Austria” in April 2020 was followed by the listing of both partners in Best Lawyers (in cooperation with Handelsblatt) in May. The ranking by JUVE, the leading publishing house for commercial law firms in the German-speaking world, in the category “Employment – Austria” completes the series of awards and confirms the high reputation the boutique for employment law, founded at the beginning of the year, enjoys among clients and competitors. In the evaluation, special reference is made to the professional employment law advice provided on a permanent basis to Austrian companies of international enterprises: “Both partners have an excellent network due to their experience in large law firms.” Competitors describe the new employment law boutique, among other things, as an “interesting union of two top employment lawyers.” “The placement in all major international legal rankings is a high distinction that confirms our common course,” Dr Wolfgang Kinner and Dr Ingrid Korenjak are pleased to say: “We thank our great employees and our wonderful clients, without whom this success would not be possible.”
