Litigation and Arbitration

We develop the right strategy for the enforcement or defence of claims by litigation. Should it not be possible to avoid court proceedings, we support the preparation of such a procedure, assess its prospects of success, and provide concrete recommendations for action. Preparation for and avoidance of court proceedings begin in the design of contracts, such as in jurisdiction agreements, arbitration clauses, and in the choice of law or allocation of the burden of proof.
