Jones Day

Comment: The practice is strengthening its profile, esp. in international arbitration proceedings. Practice head Dr. Dieter Strubenhoff was able to expand his work on behalf of Russian and Taiwanese clients. Dr. Johannes Willheim has established himself well with his expertise in disputes over long-term supply contracts, which comes in esp. useful in the work for Gazprom in various arbitration proceedings. A counsel is also being called upon more often here who moved to JD the previous year and is already being recommended by competitors. By contrast, Düsseldorf partner Dr. Denis Gebhardt, who also works as arbitrator, left JD after just under two years. Overall, the practice is involved in more and more compliance instructions arising from the interface to antitrust, which often plays a role in gas price proceedings and where Willheim holds an ideal position. However, if the firm is to score more points in the trend topic of cartel damages, it first has to give its staff a boost. (2 partners, 2 counsel, 3 associates)
Clients: ?? Gazprom in price review proceedings connected to gas supply agreements; VW on internal investigation concerning emissions scandal (public knowledge)
