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.
