Dr. Thilo von Bodungen
His decades of activity in national and international arbitration have made Thilo an arbitrator of reputation in Germany and abroad. As chairman he has written many awards, mainly in energy and construction disputes, but also in failed M&A transactions. Although both parties of an arbitration cannot leave the ring as victors, even unsuccessful parties of his core industry sectors have reappointed Thilo as arbitrator.
