The Peter Raue Preis picks up on the values, the vigor and the enthusiasm of its namesake  partner Prof. Dr. Peter Raue. The lawyers of the law firm Raue feel committed to his example. The choice of name for this award pays tribute to his outstanding involvement as a citizen of the city of Berlin, as a lawyer and as a promoter of the arts and the common welfare.

The annual award winner is chosen from three nominees by the firm’s partners. The Peter Raue Preis is awarded to individuals or institutions that have demonstrated outstanding social, civic or cultural commitment and who will continue to use the prize money for these purposes.

A five-member award committee, composed of lawyers and staff at all levels, is responsible for the preselection of nominees based on proposals received.
