Dr. Moritz Voit advises on the resolution of complex national and international disputes. He helps to find out-of-court solutions and represents our clients' interests before arbitration tribunals (e.g. ICC, DIS and ICDR) as well as before state courts.

One focus of Moritz' work is advising on post-M&A disputes and conflicts in the supply chain. Moritz is very familiar with disputes resulting from the economic disruptions of the recent past, such as the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. He also has particular expertise in the energy sector, where he recently represented clients in price adjustment proceedings and in a dispute relating to the construction of an offshore windfarm.

As part of his doctorate under Prof. Dr. em. Helmut Köhler at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, which was awarded the Faculty Prize, Moritz dealt in depth with class action proceedings and various forms of litigation funding in German, US and Australian law. In this context, he also gained extensive experience in common law jurisdictions as a visiting researcher at the University of Sydney and later as a trainee lawyer at a specialized US law firm.
