We have profound experience in the resolution of complex commercial disputes

We act as counsel and as arbitrators in national and international arbitration proceedings. We can exclude conflicts of interest to the greatest possible extent and handle all cases in lean teams, ensuring full partner engagement and maximum cost-efficiency at all times.

We are flexible in working together with other law firms and / or consultancies seeking to rely on our expertise. We also assume the role of co-counsel or local counsel for foreign law firms and parties.

In cross-border and multi-jurisdiction disputes, we cooperate with local counsel in the relevant jurisdictions. We assist parties in selecting local counsel, coordinate the cooperation and provide strategic advice.

Our working languages are German and English.
