In the area of commercial litigation, you not only need an experienced and assertive litigator at your side, but also a team that understands your operational business. When conducting legal disputes arising from the purchase and sale of goods, equipment, digital services or services, the key to success lies in understanding your products or services and in particular in understanding your business. In the area of product liability disputes, the ability to understand your products and their technology and to take the perspective of your experts is also crucial. It goes without saying that we can provide you with preventative advice to avoid disputes and can also refer you to communication consultants ("PR litigation") in the event of a crisis.
Large construction projects (plant construction, transport infrastructure, etc.) are characterised by a high degree of complexity due to the large number of participants providing interlinked services and the necessary technical expertise - even in the resulting disputes. We can assist you in resolving these disputes or preventing them from arising at all. Our specialists can draw on their many years of experience (e.g. in the field of offshore wind construction projects) as party representatives and arbitrators in these disputes.
We can help you select the appropriate dispute mechanisms for each contractual constellation, including multi-level escalation clauses and the use of dispute boards, as early as the contract initiation phase. Here we pay attention to the compatibility of dispute settlement clauses in different contracts in order to be able to include all your relevant business partners in the dispute, if required.

Whether it relates to conventional (gas, coal, nuclear), renewable energies or energy trading - we have the expertise and experience.
