Litigation

Long before corporate and M&A litigation were regarded as a separate field of law in the German legal market, Kim Lars Mehrbrey focused on these areas. He combines the experience and knowledge of being a former corporate and M&A lawyer with the skills of a professional litigator and arbitration counsel and has more than 15 years of relevant work experience in this field. Kim is also very active in bringing and defending antitrust claims and in handling professional liability cases. He is dually qualified as a German Rechtsanwalt and a Solicitor of England & Wales, which gives him a sound understanding of the different legal systems of civil and common law. 

Kim loves complex cross-border disputes and prepares, implements and coordinates strategies to discover and pursue claims. He also sets up strategies to defend against claims. Kim regularly publishes on dispute resolution matters and acts as a speaker at conferences. He is publisher and author of the largest handbook on corporate litigation in Germany.
