Litigation and Arbitration

Commercial litigation

Similar to economic cycles, commercial processes touch upon a broad range of very diverse legal subjects. Therefore, commercial background knowledge and a good understanding of technical processes are equally essential to provide the best possible legal representation as thorough knowledge of the applicable rules of procedure.

Arbitration

Arbitral proceedings gain increasing significance in particular in international commercial transactions.
Arbitration offers a range of advantages, in particular confidentiality, specific expert knowledge of the arbitrators, limited means of recourse against arbitral awards, flexible procedures and the easier enforcement of arbitral awards compared to judgments of national courts. Arbitral proceedings require an agreement by the parties. We provide assistance for the drafting of such an arbitration agreement and represent clients in national and international arbitration: in ad hoc proceedings or proceedings at the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) or the Vienna International Arbitral Centre at the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.
