Furthermore, she is a member of various boards and committees of international arbitration institutions.

Ulrike acts as counsel and arbitrator (sole arbitrator, chair and co-arbitrator) in international commercial arbitration (ad hoc, DIS, ICC, LCIA, VIAC, FAI, DIA, SCC etc.) investor-state disputes, and adjudication proceedings as well as counsel in litigation cases. As a qualified German lawyer with working experience in France, Ulrike is particularly dedicated to international work due to her international clients and her global network. Her experience includes arbitration proceedings under various jurisdictions (including Germany, Denmark, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Turkey).
