Corporate Law Forensics

Avoiding Litigation
Our litigation department advises companies, banks and institutional investors on issues of capital market-oriented corporate law, including representation before courts and arbitral tribunals. Alongside their forensic expertise, our litigators are proven corporate and capital market experts who can, given their years of court experience, provide valuable indications as to which documentary requirements the court or a tribunal may set. The foremost aim of our litigators is therefore to avoid litigation.

Stock Corporation / Takeover law-related disputes
If court action to safeguard legitimate interests is required, our litigation department provides effective and efficient enforcement of the law, including by way of interim protection such as urgent measures under takeover law legislation or protection of a vulnerable legal position under stock corporation law. Our litigators enable listed companies to quickly implement structural measures in regulatory approval procedures subject to German stock corporation law and corporate transformation law and help minimize the claims for additional compensation in price appraisal proceedings.

Commercial Arbitration
Our litigators have significant arbitration experience before both national and international arbitral courts and under the use of both German and international arbitration rules. Arbitral proceedings are in particular useful for companies to settle disputes arising from mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures or syndicate agreements and help settle shareholder disputes in family businesses.
