Dr. Kim Lars Mehrbrey

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. Being dual qualified as a German Rechtsanwalt and a Solicitor of England & Wales gives him a sound understanding of the different legal systems of civil and common law. 

He loves complex cross-border disputes and prepares, implements and coordinates strategies to discover and pursue claims on the one hand, and sets up strategies to defend against claims on the other hand. 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. The JUVE Handbooks 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 have listed Kim as frequently recommended lawyer for Corporate Litigation, Legal 500 Germany 2016 as a recommended lawyer for commercial litigation and Best Lawyers in Germany 2015/2016 ranked him in the area of litigation.
