Legal disputes are not your company's business and should ideally have little impact on your business activities. Nevertheless, your company may face legal proceedings on a massive scale. If such a situation arises, we will work with you to decide on a strategy after weighing up all legal, economic and tactical factors. If the chosen strategy is court defence, we will argue with a toughness that only comes from many years of litigation experience. This applies equally to defending against German model declaratory proceedings by consumers that is of fundamental importance for your business model or to pan-European antitrust damages proceedings involving billions of euros.
We know from experience that the outcome of in-court and out-of-court disputes is never one hundred per cent predictable. In order to still be able to offer the greatest possible degree of security, we take a forward-looking approach when analysing and assisting in the case at court and beyond. This enables us to continually adapt the litigation strategy to changing conditions and to anticipate and effectively counter possible moves by opponents. In individual and multi-party actions this includes performing a thorough investigation and analysis of the facts. We use a range of creative solutions, picking out the combination that promises to be most advantageous for your company. Our experienced advocacy specialists also guide you safely through complex taking of evidence and appeal proceedings. Efficient structures, which are scalable as needed, use of legal tech and uniform standards are a matter of course for us. The same goes for competitive and transparent fee models and the highest possible levels of quality in every individual case. And if a dispute is not financially worthwhile despite a high degree of efficiency, we will clearly advise you of this. We ultimately give you clear and practical recommendations on how to act – tailored to your specific situation or strategic goals.
Whatever method we choose, we always put together efficiently tailor-made litigation teams consisting of strong, experienced advisors. Procedural law and collective redress, banking and investment, bankruptcy and consumer law and antitrust damages are key specialisations of our practice group. Wherever required, we also draw on specialists from our other practice groups, such as product liability, corporate, capital markets, data protection, insurance and criminal law or public law. In this way, the best line-up of experts works reliably on each individual case.
Noerr often takes on the role of international lead counsel, taking control when actions across multiple countries and jurisdictions are needed.

Where necessary we can involve the most suitable local top law firms in your project through our established relationships and memberships, e.g. at Lex Mundi. This means that we can guarantee legal advice matching Noerr’s high quality standards throughout the world.
