Dieter Heine is partner at Vavrovsky Heine Marth and focuses on complex commercial litigation in the areas of TMT, unfair competition and media law. He is one of the country’s go-to litigators for highly sensitive, high stakes cases which are expected to be long-running and often have significant political or media implications. Because of the major potential economic and political impacts of these issues, he plays an important role in Austrian as well as European legislative bodies.
Dieter has carved a reputation for his strategic counselling in exceptionally long-running, high-profile cases. In addition to traditional litigation, especially complex commercial litigation, he is known for being a pioneer for consensual dispute resolution, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and strategic advice in (potentially) controversial matters. Several renowned international legal directories recommend him as one of the leading Austrian litigation experts.
As an expert in his field, Dieter Heine regularly holds lectures regarding litigation and the enforcement of rights, especially in connection with IP law, industrial and commercial property rights. He periodically gives presentations on media law for different publishers, broadcasting and TV companies. He frequently authors articles and publications in his area of expertise, such as Intellectual Property Law, Supplement AUSTRIA in the International Encyclopaedia of Laws, Wolters Kluwer Law & Business.
