Litigation and Arbitration

Conflicts cannot always be resolved outside the courts. When an appropriate settlement is not attainable, we assert our clients’ rights within the courts and defend against unjustified suits.

We have profound experience in litigation proceedings, including with complex cases concerning special issues. We represent, for example, banks in defending against lawsuits from investors and insurers in liability proceedings. We lead lawsuits in the labor courts and attend to court disputes concerning competition law and intellectual property rights. When there are patent infringement lawsuits, we work together with patent attorneys.

Further areas of focus include administrative court lawsuits, representation before the financial courts, and criminal defense by our experienced experts in commercial criminal law and in general criminal law. We also represent our clients before the federal courts. When appealing to the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) in civil matters, we work together with lawyers approved by the Federal Court of Justice (BHG), with whom we maintain close contact.

Finally, we also assist with lawsuits for our clients before German and international arbitration tribunals and can also serve as arbitrators ourselves.
