Competences

Litigation

Good prior advice helps avoiding litigation. Our counselling services are built on our longstanding experience in litigation and our ripened assessment of the legal situation. Should litigation become unavoidable, one needs to take the proper strategic measures.

We represent our clients in all courts, particularly when it comes to unfair competition and public law, be it as claimants or defendants. As far as our focus areas of practice are concerned, we also assume the defence in statutory/ criminal offence proceedings, if necessary with the help of criminal law specialists.
