Juergen Johannes Witte has the broad experience and sharp legal skills that are essential to resolving complex legal disputes, whether in or out of court, and delivering clear and feasible solutions to clients.

In his more than 20 years of experience, Juergen has built deep expertise in directors and officers liability cases, insurance disputes, banking litigation and construction and engineering disputes and has also conducted numerous internal investigations. He has guided clients through difficult disputes in various industries. 

Having started his career as a judge and public prosecutor and later becoming an OLG lawyer (i.e. admitted to appear before the Higher Regional Court), Juergen is one of very few litigators in Germany who are able to truly assess a case from the perspective of the court, which puts him in the position to develop the most appropriate strategy for each client. He attracts praise from clients for his hands-on approach and straight talk.

Clients’ appreciation for Juergen's work is well reflected by the fact that he is constantly ranked among Germany's leading litigators.

'extraordinarily high level of service...'
