We support our clients in all legal conflicts through our Practice Group “Dispute Resolution”. While assisting our clients in a solution-oriented manner, we always maintain the sense of proportion necessary to achieve an economically ideal solution. This also includes exploring alternative avenues to avoid a possibly long and expensive legal dispute. Tactics, strategy and an entrepreneurial mindset are crucial here.
We thoroughly review the facts and carefully analyze the legal situation in order to achieve the best result for our clients, accurately assessing both the chances of success and the cost risks for a legal dispute and recommending alternative steps when appropriate.
