Exceptional service for exceptional results
With a pragmatic approach and a steady hand, our global team executes the best dispute resolution strategies for your company. We are your partner in every sense of the word, fully invested in your success no matter where in the world you need us.
Your business objectives and legal strategies are intricately interconnected. Clients ask us to manage their disputes that affect their most significant business opportunities and challenges because we understand their commercial priorities as well as the legal and regulatory risks where high-stakes litigation, arbitration and investigations are concerned.
Our team helps you efficiently resolve your dispute – whether that’s through requesting an early settlement in litigation or representing you throughout arbitration proceedings. Our solutions are tailored to your needs.
We also keep you informed on market trends. We’re seeing a rise in large-scale litigation, class actions and collective redress and cases that challenge our clients’ core business.
This includes issues stemming from geopolitical tensions, supply chain disruption and global disruptors such as COVID-19 and the global economic downturn. Increasing regulatory activity has pushed our clients to address both policy and procedural requirements and has fueled an exponential increase in internal and regulator-driven investigations.
“With one of the largest and most sophisticated teams of disputes lawyers globally, we can manage large-scale challenges efficiently around the world.”
Issues linked to sustainability and ESG matters are surging. Alongside the decarbonizing of operations and supply chains, cases range from environmental litigation and related class actions to parent company liability and greenwashing.

Litigation and Arbitration
Our lawyers advise and represent you in out-of-court negotiations and on all forms of alternative dispute resolution. However, if all out-of-court settlement attempts fail, we will represent you in civil disputes before the state courts at both national and EU level, as well as in international arbitration proceedings, including acting as arbitrators under all major institutional and procedural rules.
We advise and represent our clients in disputes with their contractual partners and suppliers, in product liability or D&O/E&O cases as well as in insolvency and insurance disputes. In addition, we have extensive experience in constitutional and administrative court proceedings. With regard to ESG issues and increasingly diverse risks of litigation, including so-called climate change claims or the new type of collective action by associations, our many years of experience and special know-how with mass proceedings ideally position us to successfully navigate you through any conflict - across all sectors and jurisdictions.
Compliance and Internal Investigations
Our tried-and-tested Investigations team carries out internal investigations worldwide or supports you in the event of official searches and seizures by regulatory, supervisory or investigative authorities. Preventive advice on all major compliance issues is also one of our focal points, both locally and globally. We support you in introducing, reviewing and assessing compliance systems, advise you on risk management, on dealing with whistleblowers and setting up a corresponding whistleblower system or on fighting money laundering.
In the case of specific criminal allegations - such as corruption offences, breach of trust and fraud, disclosure of trade secrets, in the event of a cyberattack as well as in all other criminal, regulatory and crisis scenarios, our team guarantees a high level of competence and experience. Finally, we represent and defend your company vis-à-vis investigating authorities and courts and can coordinate the defence of affected employees if necessary.
