Lars Markert

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Lars Markert has joined the partnership of the firm as a foreign law partner in its international dispute resolution department, as of August 1, 2018.

Lars is expected to make a significant contribution to the firm in a broad range of areas using his considerable knowledge and experience in international arbitrations, and particularly in investor-state disputes.

Clients point out that he “regularly demonstrates immaculate legal expertise combined with an impressive grasp of complex technical issues” (Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration 2018) and that he “understands the mindset of Japanese clients and is able to translate it into what is needed in international proceedings.” Others commend him as “very reliable, good on his feet and quick in analysing complex legal situations” (Who's Who Legal: Arbitration – Future Leaders 2017).
