Our Arbitration team acts in a wide range of practice areas, with a particular focus on post-M&A, joint venture, energy, telecoms, (re-)insurance and general commercial disputes. Our advice covers all stages of the arbitration process and extends also to alternative methods of dispute resolution. Our lawyers are experienced in conducting international arbitrations under all major institutional rules, in particular under the arbitration rules of the ICC and DIS (Deutsche Institution für Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit e.V.).

Our excellent relationships with the leading arbitrators, institutions and other stakeholders within international arbitration, and in particular the German market, allows us to provide clients with optimal advice concerning the choice of arbitrators or the seat of arbitration.
