Hendrik is co-head of Farrer & Co’s Arbitration group. Sources praise his “exceptional technical skills” as a lawyer, the “commercially savvy advice” he delivers to clients and his “proactive leadership” of complex cases.
Hendrik represents entrepreneurs, family offices and companies in a wide variety of commercial and investor-state arbitrations, and also in proceedings before the English courts. His cases have ranged from post-M&A, joint venture and franchising claims to construction and shipbuilding disputes, and from proceedings against former directors for breach of their duties to insurance coverage cases. He has also worked on expropriation actions against governments and discrimination claims.
Hendrik has acted as party representative and party-appointed arbitrator in arbitrations under numerous rules, including LCIA, ICC, VIAC, SIAC, DIS, LMAA, UNCITRAL and ICSID.
Arbitration-related court proceedings are another area of expertise. Clients frequently come to Hendrik when they require assistance with enforcing arbitral awards in the UK and abroad. They also turn to him to handle appeals, annulment proceedings and injunction applications.
Multilingual and qualified in four jurisdictions (both civil law and common law), Hendrik is ideally placed to assist with international issues. Most of his matters involve a cross-border element.
Clients value Hendrik’s strong track record for achieving amicable resolutions on advantageous terms. Where disputes cannot be settled, he is known for his assertive, no-nonsense approach to case management and advocacy.
Hendrik is a Fellow Commoner of Clare Hall, Cambridge, Visiting Senior Lecturer in International Commercial Law at Johannes Kepler University Linz (Austria) and regular guest lecturer on arbitration at Exeter University.
In addition to client work, Hendrik regularly publishes on arbitration-related topics, both in academic journals and books and in the legal press. He is general editor of the forthcoming first edition of Butterworths Challenges in Arbitration.
