Dispute Resolution / Litigation

We advise and represent our clients in the enforcement of disputed claims, in dispute resolution, in arbitration and court proceedings with an ambitious team of experienced litigators.

In addition to in-depth legal expertise with interdisciplinary, cross-location support from our specialist teams in our service lines, we safeguard the interests of our clients by assessing the economic and legal prospects of success in negotiations and in the enforcement of disputed claims by jointly assessing the individual strategy.

Legal issues, which are increasingly influenced by the European legal framework and decisions of the European courts, changes in the legal basis through national legislation, and the constantly evolving case law are of particular importance in the representation in the event of a conflict.

Our approach

Our team consists of experts who not only have extensive practical experience and competence in their respective fields. Many years of practical experience as legal representatives in dispute resolution, namely in mediation and arbitration proceedings, enable them to find the necessary balance between economic and legal interests. The necessary expertise and the personality of our experts in representing clients in complex legal proceedings distinguish our team and guarantee practice-oriented solutions. Disputes are analysed individually, and a tailor-made solution is developed together with our clients.
