Litigation, arbitration and mediation 

Rödl & Partner's multi-location team for complex litigation and arbitration offers our clients professional support in dispute situations and dispute resolution. Our experienced lawyers work together in order to resolve conflicts and team up with specialists from the audit and tax consulting service lines to develop the optimal solution for our clients.

 

Our interdisciplinary solution to your conflict 

Our interdisciplinary approach in procedural law is of great importance in particular in disputes concerning valuation or other business-related issues:

  • Corporate disputes (actions seeking shareholder exclusion, severance pay, disputes over defective resolutions etc.)
  • Special proceedings concerning stock corporation law issues
  • Controversies in M&A transactions
  • Distribution law issues (e.g. sales representatives, franchising, authorised dealers)
  • International proceedings 
  • Enforcement of claims in foreign trade matters
  • Real estate law (civil and public construction law, tenancy and residential property law, real estate funds)
  • Disputes in mechanical engineering & plant construction
  • Banking law issues relating to collaterals
  • Disputes relating to intellectual property rights (e.g. trademark, patent and copyright law, unfair competition law)
  • Anti-trust and competition law disputes and public procurement law
  • Disputes with authorities, including administrative court proceedings
  • Insolvency matters.

Companies in financial distress have an especially high potential for conflict (transactions challenged by the insolvency administrator, D&O liability etc.). This is where Rödl & Partner's experience in corporate restructuring proves to be of great value when it comes to resolving conflicts and representing creditors and debtors.
 
An increasing number of commercial disputes involve foreign elements. Our clients can take advantage of the added value provided by Rödl & Partner' global reach spanning over 100 locations. Together with our colleagues worldwide, we also offer professional services and assistance in cases of conflict from a single source (e.g. via ADR – Alternative Dispute Resolution).
 
Our lawyers have extensive experience in national and international arbitration. We handle arbitration proceedings acting as representatives of parties but also as recommended arbitrators. Also within the framework of contract drafting, we advise our clients on appropriate arbitration and jurisdiction clauses.

 

Our approach to conflict resolution: 

  • Prevention (contract drafting to ensure legal certainty also in future, contract management, timely documentation but also concerted effort to find common ground)
  • Out-of-court solutions and Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures
  • Representation in courts and arbitration institutions
  • Securing and seizure of assets locally and abroad
  • Enforcement of judgements, injunctions and arbitral awards locally and abroad.
