Comment: The practice headed up by Dr. Daniel Esklony and Dr. Antje Baumann is built on two pillars: advice on D&O liability and arbitration proceedings. The team is well connected in the market and benefits from the fact that it has fewer conflicts of interest than its larger competitors. This is seen e.g. in the increasing number of instructions offered to Baumann in the role of arbitrator. The fact that she is also appointed more and more often as chairperson bears witness to the growing renown of the practice. “Freshfields level with boutique prices,” says one competitor. The firm is also sometimes involved in rather complicated cases on behalf of DAX companies such as Siemens. (2 partners, 5 associates)
Clients: ?? Siemens in several arbitration and court proceedings; Wilhelmshavener Raffineriegesellschaft, incl. on billing for inflated costs and defense against damages; Valmiera Glasfaser and Tesa in dispute concerning breaches of duty of a general contractor in connection with plant construction projects; company in reviewing claims for damages against former managing director and employee; media company in various proceedings concerning claims for damages against former member of staff and third-party company.
