Our expertise

We act as counsel and arbitrators under all major institutional rules (e.g. ICC, PCA, ICSID, LCIA, ICDR, SCC, CEAC, DIA, DIS, FIA, SIAC, SCAI, UNCITRAL, VIAC and WIPO) as well as in ad-hoc arbitration proceedings.

Our cases are seated all over the globe and are subject to a multitude of different laws, e.g. Algeria, Armenia, Austria, Bosnia, Canada, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Our clients benefit from our ability to evaluate facts from the perspective of a counsel, arbitrator, legal expert or arbitral institution. Put differently: We know what it takes to win our client’s case.

In every matter and at all times, we advise our clients in an interest-oriented, cost and time efficient manner.

A large number of publications with reputable publishers are a further testament to our arbitration expertise. They include the standard reference commentary on the ICC Arbitration Rules and DIS Arbitration Rules, co-edited by Jan Heiner Nedden.

In addition, we lecture at leading universities in Germany and abroad (including the Bucerius Law School, the Humboldt University of Berlin, the New York University New York/Paris).
