Dispute resolution: arbitration and mediation

Within: Dispute resolution: arbitration and mediation

KNOETZL HAUGENEDER NETAL's 'deep expertise' spans several sectors but recently, the team has been particularly active in handling commercial and investment protection arbitration in the energy, construction and engineering sectors. Clients also benefit form the firm's strong white-collar criminal defence capabilities leading to regular mandates at this intersection, including asset tracing work. Emmanuel Kaufman and team head Florian Haugeneder acted for Casinos Austria International and Casinos Austria in a dispute over the revocation of an exclusive gaming license held by the client's subsidiary in Salta, Argentina; the revocation was based on alleged failure to comply with the regulatory framework in Salta.
