WACH + MECKES LLP is the spin-off of the German Litigation / Arbitration Group of a leading international law firm. Dr. Karl J. T. Wach headed the group and the Munich office of this firm since 2001. Frank Meckes was responsible for the group’s M&A litigation and arbitration practice.
The group is listed as one of the top 15 teams for corporate and commercial litigation in Germany by the JUVE handbook 2008/2009. Dr. Karl J. T. Wach is referred to as a "specialist in post-M&A disputes" and he is internationally recognised as an expert in dispute resolution and litigation by Chambers, European Legal Experts, Legal500 and "Best Lawyers" Germany.
As an independent litigation / arbitration boutique WACH + MECKES LLP co-operates on a case by case basis with international law firms who do not have dispute resolution capacity on the ground in Germany. When providing our dispute resolution services to their clients in areas like M&A litigation and arbitration, financial institutions’ liability and cartel damages we work together with their specialist lawyers or, as the case may be, with external specialists from our German and international network.
The independence of our firm enables us to also support our clients in disputes in which other firms are inhibited from acting due to conflicts of interests.
