Our Dispute Resolution expertise

A leading team in the Swiss legal market for contentious matters, the Niederer Kraft Frey Dispute Resolution team provides a comprehensive service and is known for being easy to work with, efficient and business-aware.

Our client base includes global banks, leading technology firms and large international sports organisations.

The team has decades of experience advising and representing clients in corporate, finance, competition and commercial matters before commercial and other courts in Switzerland, including the Swiss Federal Supreme Court, the Federal Criminal Court, the Federal Administrative Court, and administrative, regulatory and criminal authorities and courts. We have extensive experience advising on complex and high-value cases, with a significant international element. Our experience covers disputes in a wide range of industries from financial, commodities and sports to energy, construction and pharma disputes, to global investigations and risk management. We are regularly instructed in high-stakes domestic and international arbitration proceedings.

We take a pragmatic approach to dealing with disputes and pride ourselves on our ability, when the particular circumstances merit it, to negotiate and settle disputes in the interests and to the long-term benefit of our clients.

The team works closely with our clients, with NKF’s strong global network of leading law firms, and with specialists from all other practice areas across the firm to ensure that we provide cost-effective, comprehensive, tailored advice which protects and advances the interests of our clients.
