Court-approved antitrust mediator
Anne Wegner is an antitrust mediator approved by the competent German court of appeal. As a mediator, she specialises in out-of-court settlement of claims arising under antitrust law, e.g., for damages, injunctive relief, supply, etc. A procedure before an antitrust mediator offers several advantages. An agreement concluded by the parties in front of a court-approved mediator has the same effect as a state court judgment.
