Litigation, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution

In the area of litigation and arbitration, we are one of the leading law firms in Germany.

The German dispute resolution group, led by Dr Marc Zimmerling, is an integral part of the firm’s international dispute resolution group.

The team supports our clients by providing strategic advice on commercial law disputes as well as representation in complex legal disputes. Litigation includes structured management of proceedings, also with regard to defending against class actions. Our advisory services offer the clarification and assessment of each matter.

In the area of arbitration, the team provides advice pursuant to the rules of all material institutional arbitration organisations; some members of the team also act as arbitrators. Our German dispute resolution team focuses on national and international private, corporate, insurance, finance, capital markets and energy law.
