sub practice

We represent clients extensively in civil or commercial law disputes. We provide support both in asserting and defending against such claims. These kinds of disputes can stem from many different areas of industry. The form and structure of these proceedings is thus varied.

Frequently, such proceedings have considerable connections to other jurisdictions, allowing us to use our special expertise in the area of international disputes (particularly in the aspects of cross-border service of process, international jurisdiction, legal assistance with the taking of evidence, and enforcement abroad).

Our special expertise in the area of the conflict of laws (private international law) is very relevant in this regard.
