King & Spalding International Arbitration Team and Partner Jan K. Schaefer Honored by WirtschaftsWoche

FRANKFURT, Dec. 8, 2022—King & Spalding’s International Arbitration team and partner Jan Schaefer were named as one of the “most renowned” arbitration firms and lawyers in Germany by WirtschaftsWoche, a German business news magazine.

Schaefer, a partner in the firm’s Trial and Global Disputes practice, heads King & Spalding's dispute resolution practice in Germany. He represents foreign and German clients in domestic and international arbitration matters, both commercial and investor-state. He appears before German courts in first- and second-instance matters, including for the taking of evidence for foreign proceedings, interim relief and enforcement applications, and is in high demand as international arbitrator.

The Handelsblatt Research Institute, which conducted the survey, asked more than 1650 lawyers from 146 law firms about their most renowned colleagues for dispute resolution.
