Dispute Resolution

Mission Statement

A global economy, diverging legal regimes and intensified cooperation of public authorities pose numerous legal challenges for enterprises. We are in a unique position to provide advice in these areas and to represent international clients in cross-border litigation, arbitration, or internal investigations. We endeavor to resolve disputes as efficiently as possible and focus on practical and economical solutions. We support our clients having in mind the primary goal of finding a tailored solution by offering practical advice and using alternative methods of dispute resolution.

We primarily represent our clients in litigation involving complex facts and circumstances in connection with difficult legal issues, often in an international setting. In doing so our law firm aims to provide our best talents to each client, meeting all requirements with priority and competence, and to cooperate seamlessly when they provide services to you. Clients are provided with a team of attorneys that best meets their needs. Depending on the type of proceedings and the subject matter we form teams of experts from the field of litigation and dispute resolution and thus use your attorneys' expertise in a manner that is optimal in terms of procedural expertise. Efficient procedural management and our strategic skills combined with our service orientation have top priority in this context.

Even though we work in almost all areas, we have been particularly successful in representing clients in corporate law disputes, disputes in connection with capital market transactions, financing or insolvencies, mass actions, or collective redress proceedings. 
Our partners regularly represent clients also in national and international arbitral proceedings under different rules of arbitration (ICC, UNCITRAL, VIAC, or DIS) or ad-hoc proceedings, and act as arbitrators. We also regularly support clients in international disputes in different jurisdictions in cooperation with our partner law firms abroad.

„We feel that we are always well looked after and that our concerns are heard both professionally and personally and are met with the best solutions“
