Dr Tino Schneider

Counsel

Frankfurt am Main

Tino specialises in commercial and investment treaty arbitration. He has represented clients in arbitrations throughout the world under most of the major institutional rules. He also advises clients on contract management issues regarding the delivery of major construction and engineering projects.

Tino’s practice has a particular focus on construction projects, including power plants (renewables and nuclear), energy storage solutions (hydrogen plants, battery systems), transport infrastructure, and industrial plants. He also advises on disputes arising out of gas supply agreements, corporate transactions, joint ventures, foreign investments, intellectual property licensing agreements as well as distribution and agency contracts.

Tino is described as a “supremely talented lawyer” with “unparalleled expertise in construction arbitration” (Who’s Who Legal 2021). He is hailed as “one of the best construction lawyers of his generation” and market observers state that he “combines deep technical knowledge, superb strategic thinking and outstanding advocacy skills” and that he possesses “a very sharp legal mind” (Who’s Who Legal 2022). Other sources describe him as “a strategic mastermind with outstanding analytical and cross-examination skills” and add that “You do not want to face him as opposing counsel” (Who’s Who Legal 2022).

For several years in a row, Tino has been listed by Who’s Who Legal as a Future Leader both in the fields of arbitration and construction and has been ranked as one of the most highly regarded individuals for arbitration and, since 2024, also as a “Global Elite Thought Leader - Under 45”. He is also listed as a leading arbitration lawyer by Who’s Who Legal Switzerland, where he practiced before joining Allen & Overy. Tino is a board member of the German Swiss Lawyers Association and a former regional representative of DIS40.
