Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Every individual, every culture, every era has its own conception of Beauty. At the same time, Beauty is universal and timeless. It can be found in the arts, in nature, in other persons and in all forms of human endeavours – including the practice of law. In their work, lawyers must perceive, analyse and present their insights in a process that allows “beautiful” lawyering.

Accordingly, Beauty is the theme of the 2015 edition of roadmap, an annual schoenherr publication presenting overviews from our lawyers on recent and upcoming legal developments in our core practice areas, as well as critical insights and analyses of these developments.

The concept of Beauty also plays a central role in the artwork of Leo Zogmayer, the Austrian artist whose designs, objects and photographs provide the artistic framework for roadmap15.
