I resolve disputes! By assisting clients through result-oriented litigation and arbitration or by deciding them as efficient arbitrator.

I have been working in national and international litigation and arbitration, large scale disputes, alternative dispute resolution (e.g. mediation), sports law, maritime law, and contract law for over 20 years. I advise parties in commercial, sports, maritime, financial, commodities, constructions and other industry areas in disputes arising from license and joint venture agreements, agency contracts, sales and purchase agreements, transfer and employment matters, manufacturing as well as in the case of construction projects. I have taken part in over 50 arbitration proceedings as chair, co- or sole arbitrator and counsel, primarily in ICC, Swiss Rules, CAS and ad hoc arbitration proceedings as well as in domestic arbitration.
