Head of White & Case's German arbitration practice, Markus' work focuses on national and international dispute resolution.
He represents German domestic and multinational clients in a variety of court and arbitration proceedings, including those conducted under the ICC, DIS, UNCITRAL, SIAC, VIAC and Swiss rules. In addition, Markus regularly acts as an arbitrator or as a German-law ‘expert’ in international arbitration proceedings.
