When litigation in court cannot be avoided

Litigation before state courts and arbitration tribunals is one of the core competencies of our law firm. Almost all of our lawyers engage in forensic activities in addition to their extensive advisory work. We believe court experience is a prerequisite for a lawyer’s ability to provide comprehensive advice and draft sound contracts. Our litigation team has an extensive court track record and understands how courts may consider certain contractual clauses.

Covering all aspects of private international law and the law of international and European civil procedure, we often handle complex proceedings, in both domestic and cross‑​border cases, including enforcement procedures in Germany and abroad. We work in especially tailored teams of experienced litigation lawyers and specialists from the relevant law practices to offer integrated advice on all areas of the law from a single source.

We are your competent representatives in case of dispute. Contact us.
