FPS Wins PMN Management Award 2019
Dr Robin Fritz is Managing Partner of the Year
On 19 September, the PMN Management Awards were presented at the festive PMN Award Gala in Frankfurt, with around 100 guests, and innovative projects from commercial law firms and auditor companies were honoured in seven categories. While the law firms in the categories Business Development, Human Resources, Communication, Legal Tech, Sustainability, and Newcomer were able to submit their own projects, the jury’s decision in the Management category is based on a peer-group survey. The award as Managing Partner of the Year went to Dr Robin L. Fritz,
who has headed FPS for many years.
The law firm, with its four locations and around 140 professionals, is characterised by “charming understatement” and has “what it takes to become a hidden champion”, according to the jury. The FPS lawyers enjoy an excellent reputation, yet the firm is rather reserved. “Entrepreneurial freedom and a high degree of solidarity among the partners characterise the firm”, the jurors continue.
From the laudation of the jury: “Success always has many mothers and fathers; the one of FPS bears most notably one name: Dr Robin L. Fritz. [For] almost twenty years he [has served] as Managing Partner, confirmed by all partners every two years in uncontested elections. Supported by a management board, he focuses on strategic issues, the public image, and internal reconciliation of interests. Above all, it was his leadership that enabled the merger of the predecessor law firms and has led FPS to today’s unified successful law firm.”
