Litigation proceedings can be a regular corollary of a company’s business, or they can arise in the form of an exceptional worst case. They can range from being minute, calling into question whether they are even worth pursuing, to being huge bet-the-company litigations, threatening the existence of the company or a major line of business, effectively bringing (a part of) a company’s operations to a halt. Whatever their nature or size, however, they have the potential of putting enormous strain on a business’ resources.


Knowing this, it is our conviction that such matters must be handled as efficiently as possible, and yet as effectively as required. Every case is special, and every case requires its own strategy and approach – always tailored to the needs of the client. This also includes the question whether litigation is the right fit for a particular dispute at all. We do not only have one gear, spurring our clients on to litigate, whatever the cost. Instead, in analysing any given case, we take a holistic approach, identifying strengths and weaknesses, evaluating risks, and proposing a route towards the most reasonable resolution of the dispute.


Our lawyers are recognized experts in civil and commercial litigation matters in both domestic and cross-border disputes. They are experienced in much more than just the typical court litigation, continuously assisting our clients in ancillary proceedings in order to secure their legal positions, including through injunctive relief and enforcement. Finally, our team has particular experience in providing assistance in relation to foreign litigations, including in court proceedings aimed at the securing and taking of evidence.


Our team has advised and successfully represented clients in various industry sectors, including construction and engineering, transportation, pharma, oil and gas, insurance and reinsurance, finance and luxury goods. In addition to our experience in representing business clients, we also advise private clients in all litigious matters.
