During the ALFA International (ALFAI) Annual Business Meeting (ABM) in Chicago on October 26, Tiefenbacher, ALFAI’s member firm in Germany, was presented with the 2023 Law Firm of the Year Award. This recognition underscores Tiefenbacher’s unwavering commitment and numerous contributions to the ALFAI network throughout the past year.
As one of Germany’s premier independent mid-sized law firms, Tiefenbacher has been a vital part of ALFAI since joining the network in 2003. Since then, the firm’s attorneys have been actively involved, currently serving on six different ALFAI Practice Group Steering Committees, including Construction, Corporate Transactions, Future Leaders, Gig Economy, Labor & Employment and Women’s Initiative.
Gero Schneider and Christin Krämer, distinguished attorneys from Tiefenbacher, have demonstrated exceptional leadership within ALFAI this past year. Gero is currently serving as a Member of ALFAI’s Dues, International Membership, Legal World Evolution and Marketing Committees. Meanwhile, Christin, just completed her tenure as Chair of the Future Leaders Practice Group in October, and is presently serving as the Marketing Chair of the Women’s Initiative Practice Group. Both Gero and Christin also currently act as ALFAI Advocates to provide guidance and support to new ALFAI member firms, ensuring new firms seamlessly integrate into the network during the critical first 12-18 months.
Furthermore, Tiefenbacher attorneys contribute thought leadership through written publications and speaking engagements at various ALFAI events, including the 2023 International Client Seminar, Labor & Employment Seminar and the Managing Partner Forum.
Jessica Zaroski Bauer, ALFAI’s CEO, expressed, “Tiefenbacher is being recognized for being an integral part of the ALFAI network, especially in the European region. They actively participate in many ALFAI committee and practice group calls scheduled past business hours in Germany. They also attend several in-person ALFAI events throughout the year despite the significant time and expense needed to travel internationally. We happily bestow this tremendous honor on the firm in recognition of their leadership and collective contributions to the ALFAI network.”
ALFAI congratulates Tiefenbacher on being awarded as the 2023 Law Firm of the Year and looks forward to the firm’s continued success in ALFAI.
