Georg Naegeli is a member of Homburger's litigation and arbitration practice team. He knows how judges think as he served as one for 10 years. Since he joined Homburger in 2000, he has represented clients in commercial disputes in international arbitration and before state courts, always with a view to finding the right balance between fighting for the client's interests when necessary and reaching a compromise when appropriate. Georg holds various assignments as chair or member of institutional and ad hoc arbitral tribunals. In addition, he is a member of Homburger's restructuring and insolvency working group and advises clients on, and represents them in, insolvency and restructuring proceedings.
