Within: Arbitration (including international arbitration)

DLA Piper has traditionally had a strong focus on post-M&A arbitration, but has recently also seen an increase in energy and D&O liability disputes. Daniel Sharma is defending a global corporation concerning the payment of compensation for damages following corruption claims, and is representing a conglomerate in arbitration under ICC rules. Frank Roth and Christian Schneider are defending an insurer in a multiparty arbitration regarding a W&I insurance product. Counsel Friederike Landauer also has outstanding expertise in international arbitration proceedings. The practice was strengthened in November 2017 by the addition of counsel Sebastian Schneider, who joined from Latham & Watkins LLP.

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
