The resolution of disputes before state courts or arbitration tribunals is only ultima ratio. Even with the most careful drafting of the underlying contracts, there is sometimes no other choice. This applies in particular if the other party becomes insolvent and the insolvency administrator - who is obliged to the insolvency creditors - brings an action in order to increase the insolvency estate.

Piltz Legal offers you many years of experience and comprehensive expertise in national and international arbitration. Piltz Legal represents you in proceedings before state courts and arbitration tribunals, shows you in which structures arbitration is practically without alternative and recommends proven dispute resolution clauses for your contracts.

Arbitration is much more balanced for the international settlement of disputes and more adaptable to the particularities of the case to be decided than state jurisdiction. Nevertheless, arbitration is not a panacea either and requires prudent preliminary examinations.

Many conceivable conflicts and potential disputes can at least be significantly defused and mitigated by prudent and careful drafting of contracts. However, this also includes robust dispute settlement clauses.

Prof. Dr. Piltz is or has been an arbitrator in numerous proceedings and is Chairman of the Executive Committee of the European-Latin American Arbitration Association (ELArb) in Hamburg.
