Forensic experience, i.e. litigation before state courts or arbitration tribunals, is one of the core competences of our firm, in addition to advice on and drawing up contracts. We believe there is a clear connection between the two competences as lawyers are only good drafters of contracts if they know how their wording of a contract will hold up in court.
Our team consists of highly specialised experts in a wide range of fields and who, in addition to their excellent professional qualifications, have many years of experience in litigation before German courts.
For us, litigation in a specific case begins first and foremost with trying to avoid litigation, i.e. searching for out-of-court dispute resolution options, such as conducting settlement negotiations or accompanying our clients during mediation. If none of these succeeds, we assess the litigation risk and work with you to develop a strategy for taking further action, negotiate for you in advance, and represent you in court and arbitration proceedings of every kind and instance.
As our law firm's focus on media law, the ‘interim injunction’ is a frequently used type of proceedings. It is often the simplest, quickest and usually even the cheapest way to obtain a settlement of a dispute, yet it requires special experience in its application due to the high demands on swiftness and expertise.
Similarly, we represent clients in extensive serial and large-scale cases with long court proceedings and guide them through these very organisationally complex types of proceedings with routine, perseverance, meticulousness and a wealth of knowledge.
Our team is active in forensic issues throughout Germany and is very familiar with the practices in Berlin, Munich, Cologne and Hamburg that are important for media law.
