AKD boasts an extensive team comprising dozens of lawyers who excel at resolving business disputes. Our preference is to prevent disputes altogether or nip them in the bud. In the event legal action cannot be avoided, we will gladly assist you in court, in arbitrations or in mediations.

AKD advises and litigates on every possible dispute involving corporate law, including shareholders’ disputes, disputes between joint venture partners, inquiry procedures, corporate governance and participation disputes, group liability and directors’ and officers’ liability issues.

AKD regularly represents consumer groups, investors or companies in class action lawsuits. We have the knowledge and the network to assist in these matters from the very start (obtaining funds) to the very end (drafting a settlement, for example).

Our specialists frequently assist independent professionals, such as doctors, accountants and tax consultants, who are being held liable for professional errors. In these cases, our services are often sought by the insurer with whom the professional concerned has taken out insurance.
