Dr. Annette Rosenkötter recommended in procurement   

‘The team around Dr. Rosenkötter works quickly, reliably, extremely competently and in an uncomplicated manner. Appointments are made possible quickly and communication within the procurement law team as well as with clients is smooth. From a professional point of view, as well as in the other social, personal or methodological areas of competence, the team works excellently, is always up to date with the latest legal rulings and is also convincing with its procurement law seminars for clients.'

'My first contact is always the team leader, Dr. Rosenkötter, who summarizes and analyzes complex, legal issues in an understandable and comprehensible manner, both orally and in pleadings, even for non-lawyers, and always finds a legally appropriate, often innovative solution to procurement law issues. In contrast to other law firms, Dr. Rosenkötter then also commits herself in her analysis after sufficient research and convinces clients as well as contracting authorities. She has a high level of social competence, can listen, finds compromises and convincing solutions.'
