Dispute Resolution

The increasingly complex and international environment in which companies operate makes disputes economically inevitable. The successful representation of clients' interests requires lawyers with many years of experience and a broad spectrum of legal and economic expertise.

Corporate

Martius provides comprehensive advice in corporate disputes. One of our main areas of practice lies in cases involving directors' and officers' liability. Here we advise and represent companies, board members and D&O insurers. We also have particular expertise in conducting internal investigations.

We also act for companies and shareholders in defending and enforcing their rights, for example in actions for rescission and nullity against shareholder resolutions, in release proceedings and appraisal proceedings as well as in the initiation and conduct of special audits. Another core aspect of our work is advising our clients in litigious shareholder constellations, for example on the redemption of shares or the enforcement of information and profit distribution rights.

Post-M&A

We have many years of expertise in the enforcement of claims as well as in the defence against claims in connection with corporate transactions. Here we advise, for example, in disputes about breaches of warranty, breaches of pre-contractual disclosure obligations, claims for indemnification as well as purchase price adjustments. In this respect, we benefit from our experience as advisors in M&A transactions.

 

 

 

 

Capital Markets

Another focus of our litigation practice lies on capital market disputes. Here we defend our clients against damage claims for inaccurate capital markets information. In addition, we have great expertise in the enforcement of claims in connection with public takeovers, such as top-up claims on the basis of the minimum price regulations of the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act. Another central aspect of our work is advising companies on investigations by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority concerning breaches of obligations under capital market law.

 

 

Commercial

We advise and represent clients comprehensively in all commercial and business law disputes, such as disputes along the supply chain, development cooperations and joint ventures. In disputes with an international dimension, we cooperate with renowned foreign law firms from our network.

 

 

 

 

Arbitration

Complex commercial disputes are often decided in arbitration proceedings in which we represent our clients comprehensively. In addition to conducting arbitration proceedings, we also take care of the selection of arbitrators, the compilation of evidence and - if necessary - the enforcement of the arbitral award.
