Arnold & Porter KAYE SCHOLER

Comment: The merger of Kaye Scholer and Arnold & Porter meant a structural upheaval for this litigation practice due to the expanded international reach and potential ties to new practice groups. The challenge will come in linking the German partners’ high-class yet mostly national litigation business into the now larger international practice. Overlaps emerge e.g. in arbitration and cartel damages. Dr. Michael Weigel concentrates on financial law litigation, which is put to good use in his best known instruction: representing Bird & Bird with regard to the Wölbern Invest insolvency administrator. Dr. Klaus Eyber specializes in dealing with the consequences of statutory violations committed by employees of corporations. Interfaces emerge with the work of a counsel focused on insolvency proceedings. (2 partners, 1 counsel, 1 associate)
Clients: ?? Lunkewitz publishers on damages following failed acquisition of Aufbau Verlag; Bird & Bird on defense against damages with regard to Wölbern Invest insolvency administrator and countersuit; international investors in claims against VW concerning omitted ad hoc notification in connection with emissions scandal; baked goods producer on damages against mill cartel; international bank and investment fund in complaint against insolvency administrator remuneration.
