We do not litigate for the sake of it. Yet when we handle a dispute for a client (whether a major corporation, a medium-sized company or a private individual), we do so with the determination, passion and tenacity that have shaped Noerr’s reputation over a number of decades. We aim to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients. In doing so, we act proportionally and take account of all of those aspects which are important to our clients.
Drawing on experience, we know that the outcome of disputes both in and out of court cannot be controlled or predicted with absolute certainty. Nevertheless, in order to offer the best possible predictability, we proactively analyse and draw-up an individual dispute strategy for you and the particular case at hand. We provide you with a clear and open-minded assessment of the opportunities and risk at an early stage.
We react quickly to new developments – be that the reactions of your opponent, the court or the media – enabling us to respond effectively. Out of a number of options, we creatively select the approach which offers the best chance for our client.
We are willing to take risks, but only together with our client, and only if those risks do not jeopardise our client’s good reputation.
To this end we deploy focused, customised litigation teams comprised of strong and experienced advisors and where appropriate we also consult specialists from our other practice groups such as banking, corporate, employment, insolvency, cartel and criminal law.
Noerr frequently acts as the international lead counsel, coordinating cases across numerous countries and jurisdictions. We understand what matters to you, our clients, in cross-border disputes.
Whenever necessary, we draw on our long-standing connections and memberships, such as the Lex Mundi network, to identify the most suitable local law-firms for your project. This enables us to guarantee truly global legal advice that satisfies the exacting quality standards of Noerr.
