In June 2020, Keller Menz was named one of four "preferred law firms" in Munich (Kanzleimonitor, p. 141). Thomas Keller was named as a recommended lawyer based on recommendations by companies and in-house lawyers.
In July 2020, Brand eins labelled Keller Menz as a "recommended law firm/ representation of the company" nationwide.
In September 2020, Focus Spezial Anwälte named Keller Menz as top commercial law firm.
In October 2020, for the 5th consecutive time, Keller Menz was mentioned in the yearly Juve-ranking. The comment listed in Juve was:
“The strength of this team, which is mainly based in Munich, lies in the all-round advice it provides to its often medium-sized clients. The team covers (social security) advice on the use of external staff as well as special questions on data protection, compliance or variable remuneration. As a mediator, Keller also looks at the challenges beyond legal issues. The holistic approach also includes the interface with corporate law, which was in demand, for example, in the post-merger integration of a public-sector company for a large laboratory group. A pension specialist coordinated and clarified issues relating to the supplementary pension fund. In restructuring and transfers of undertakings, the practice has become established not only on the employer side but also on the works council side, which in some cases simplifies agreement in negotiations on works constitution law, such as collective agreements on short-time working. Often recommended: Thomas Keller ("very creative and practice-oriented", competitor) and Dr Christian Ley ("precise, tough negotiator, but solution-oriented", competitor; representation of managing directors and board members). Team: 3 equity partners, 7 salary partners; Focus: All-round advice predominantly to mid-sized employers. Also active for BRs; restructuring, occupational pension schemes, social security audits, variable remuneration; increasingly compliance and employee relations.”
