GERMAN DESIGN AWARD 2019 – WINNER

26.11.2018

In 2019, too, we can look forward to a very special honor – winner of the German Design Award. Presented by the German Design Council, the German Design Award is awarded every year to innovative national and international brands, products and projects. With our campaign for the Intellectual Property/IT specialist area, we asserted ourselves over competitors from different industries and countries in the field of “Integrated Campaigns and Advertising.”

The expert jury of the German Design Award praised the campaign for its “skilled brand work” as well as its “clear design and confident wording.” In the words of the jury, our campaign is an example of outstanding communication that allows for even greater selectivity thanks to the division of the sphere of competence and, in turn, a more differentiated approach.

We are thrilled with this fantastic award for our communication.

FPS continues its successful growth, with higher revenues, more attorneys, and a stronger corporate law practice.

At the same time, it is apparent that the firm's attorneys think of themselves not as anonymous members of a mega law firm, but rather as team players in a (large) midsized firm. This is evident not only from the surprisingly pleasant lawyer-client interaction all the way up to the top of the firm, but also from the excellent price-performance ratio for which the firm is known on the market. The considerable number of long-term clients speaks for itself.
