Hanefeld

Comment: Highly recommended for arbitration, this firm has earned itself an exceptional position in the German market. The scope and number of international arbitration proceedings conducted by Hanefeld lawyers as litigators or arbitrators come closer to those of large firms than other boutiques. The firm is taking a cautious yet, according to some competitors, highly sustainable approach to staff growth. Newly appointed salary partner Rosenfeld, for instance, boasted a strong market presence even as an associate, which is also true of other up-and-coming lawyers. In terms of content, the practice is increasingly dealing with disputes concerning offshore wind farms, with Nedden and Schmidt-Ahrendts also highly visible in adjudication proceedings here. Hanefeld herself developed her activities as arbitrator even further.
Strengths: Extensive experience in international arbitration.
Recommended: Dr. Inka Hanefeld (“experienced and well connected”, “always brilliantly prepared”, competitors), Heiner Nedden (“highly experienced, quick and precise”, competitor), Dr. Nils Schmidt-Ahrendts (“dedicated, doesn’t give up even in the more hopeless cases”, competitor), increasingly: Dr. Friedrich Rosenfeld (“brilliant mind”, competitor).
Practice: Renowned for arbitration as litigator and arbitrator. Preventive advice, ADR, mediation and litigation. Sectors: engineering, plant construction, infrastructure, finance, energy, media. Also investment protection. Good international network of firms and arbitration institutions. (4 partners, 3 associates)
Clients: ?? Hansa-Heemann on action for damages against sugar cartel (with Wagner Legal).
