Litigation

Good advisory services during corporate acquisitions, while drafting (partnership) agreements, making succession arrangements, developing marketing plans as well as navigating the complex public licensing process can only be provided by someone who is also able to recognise potential points of conflict and knows how to handle difficult court disputes. This is why we draw upon our vast experience, assertiveness and ability to remain focused on the objectives as we represent the interests of our clients before the national courts, European courts and the European Commission as well as the various boards of appeal of the agencies of the European Union and, via our network of lawyers LEGALINK, before the international courts. This of course includes the representation of clients in arbitration proceedings. The partners of our law firm also regularly preside as judges or arbitrators in national and international arbitration proceedings. Whenever it makes sense to do so, we use our specialised expertise to fight for the interests of our clients: in shareholder disputes and post-merger disputes, in commercial law issues, in patent, trademark and competition law disputes, in antitrust proceedings, in employment law disputes and in public law proceedings. We are well acquainted with the intricacies of interim legal protection (temporary injunctions or interim orders) and ensure that our clients' rights are protected even when there is no time to lose. Legal proceedings have to be managed. We know how and support our clients, also during protracted disputes, helping them keep on top of litigation series both organisationally and strategically.
