Advantages of Arbitration
He has been praised in Chambers Global for his “proactive and skillful” approach to arbitration. Karsten represents clients in arbitrations under various German and international rules but also regularly acts as arbitrator. In addition, he frequently represents global enterprises in international disputes before the national courts.
When he originally started practicing law, Karsten was an M&A lawyer, and as a result has extensive experience in contracts and their negotiation. But the opportunity to work in dispute resolution and especially arbitration appealed to him as it reminded him of his passion for the game of chess. Much in the same way he calculates strategy when playing the game, he sees in complex disputes the importance of thinking ahead, anticipating the moves of the other parties, the temperament of the opponents and ultimately the fight to win.
