international law

Schoenherr's experts bring legal advice in international law matters straight to the point.

"The team is very young and dynamic, whereby this does not come at the cost of quality or experience."
Legal 500



Our international law practice has been thriving as international law has become ever more important, particularly in investment law.

Recent developments have caused considerable uncertainty, but a surge in potential investment claims. Many intra-EU investors are uncertain about the extent to which they are still protected at the level of international law. At the same time, countless investors may be able to claim damages for losses suffered due to COVID-19-related state measures, under EU law or international law.

We advise clients on their position and potential claims under international investment law, explore their options and provide innovative solutions, and structure cross-border investments. In this way, we help procure and secure their investment claims. And we win them. Our arbitration team has an outstanding track record, "unbeaten" in investor-state disputes.

Our international law practice also advises and represents clients in matters of diplomatic immunity, international trade law and human rights law, most prominently before the European Court of Human Rights.

The practice has been thriving thanks to the international background and expertise of its team. With Victoria Pernt, trained and admitted in civil and common law jurisdictions, the team has won four investment arbitrations in the past few years alone. Marina Stanisavljevic, a world citizen and Australian admitted lawyer, also specialises in international law and investment arbitration. And Partner Leon Kopecký is praised "for his knowledge of international investment law and international arbitration." (Chambers 2020)
