Dr. Nikolaus Pitkowitz is acting as party appointed arbitrator in a proceeding under ICC Rules regarding the adjustment of long-term energy contracts between two major European energy companies. The case involves legal questions of national and European Union law across several different legal areas, such as energy regulatory law, competition law and contract law. The value in dispute lies in excess of USD 100 million.

We have been successful in securing several major victories for our client, including a full victory before the Austrian Supreme Court which recognizes a strongly-disputed CIETAC award. The award was rendered during the CIETAC’s Shanghai Commission separation.
