The settlement of disputes can be achieved in various ways: through litigation, arbitration or out-of-court solutions. We will advise you in choosing the best way to resolve the dispute. Furthermore, we have particular expertise in investor proceedings, in which we usually represent banks and financial institutions in defending claims.
Our clients benefit from our comprehensive know-how, particularly in the fields of real estate, energy, aviation and in the financial sector. In the increasingly important arbitration proceedings, we not only represent parties; some of our partners are also arbitrators – and are registered as such in the list of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
