Christoph Schubert advises companies and insolvency administrators on the efficient resolution of commercial disputes.
In doing so, he develops individual conflict resolution strategies that take into account not only the legal issues but also the tactical and economical dimensions of a dispute. This includes advising on litigation funding options to mitigate or exclude financial risks.
Furthermore, Christoph regularly represents clients on the plaintiff's and defendant's side in court and accompanies them in mediation proceedings as well as in difficult negotiations.
Christoph has many years of experience in litigation and out-of-court dispute resolution, especially in connection with insolvency proceedings. He is also a trained commercial mediator.
Before joining Hausfeld, he worked in a boutique law firm specializing in insolvency law and in leading major law firms in the field of dispute resolution/litigation. He also worked for several years in leading positions for litigation funders.
Christoph studied at the University of Münster (Germany). Before his admission to the bar, he was a lecturer for a nationwide German legal bar course, preparing students for their first state law examination. In addition to his native German, he is fluent in English.
