Borris Hennecke Kneisel

Comment: Recommended for arbitration proceedings and litigation, this firm primarily has Borris’ work as arbitrator to thank for its solid reputation, although the young outfit has also seen significant development in terms of its specialties. D&O disputes now play an important role, with the firm representing companies and members of decision-making bodies. All partners are also active as arbitrators, however they have a slightly less international orientation than at Hanefeld, for instance. Borris is also entrusted with alternative dispute resolution methods: competitors praise his role as chairman in high-volume adjudication proceedings associated with an offshore wind farm. The younger partners are also raising their profiles, esp. Hennecke.
Strengths: High degree of specialization, well-rehearsed team.
Recommended: Dr. Christian Borris (“carries out proceedings efficiently in his capacity as chairman, very well prepared”, competitor), Rudolf Hennecke (“conducts negotiations with confidence, objective, calm”, competitor).
Practice: In litigation, frequent disputes between shareholders and JV partners. Occasional IP matters in cooperation with highly regarded patents boutique. Broadly positioned in arbitration in the energy, management consulting, technology and commercial sectors. Much experience as arbitrators. (3 partners, 1 associate)
Clients: ? Finance company on liability with respect to former CEO and supervisory board; chairman in adjudication concerning wind farm project; trust in proceedings (German Institution of Arbitration) on damages linked to violated accounts warranty; insolvency administrator in 2 ICC proceedings and in damage suit against audit company concerning allegedly flawed reorganization report.
