Dr. Alexander Shchavelev, LL.M. (UNSW Sydney)

Rechtsanwalt, Senior Associate

Alexander Shchavelev assists clients in resolving their disputes, in particular by acting as counsel in arbitration and litigation proceedings. He strives to resolve the disputes as early and efficient as possible.

Alexander is member of the firm's German dispute resolution team in Munich. He specialises in domestic and international arbitration and litigation, with a particular emphasis on commercial, M&A, venture capital, energy and construction related disputes. His extensive experience acting as administrative secretary of arbitral tribunals gives him the particular ability to see the case from all vantage points and better anticipate its course.

Another focus of Alexander's practice form Russia and CIS related matters. The combination of his Russian background and German legal education allows him to master both legal and cultural implication of a transaction or dispute. In these matters, Alexander closely works with other members of the firm’s Russia and CIS Initiative based in London. 

In addition to advising clients, Alexander regularly shares his practical experience by publishing on arbitration and commercial law subjects. He is an active member of the German-Russian Lawyers Association (DRJV) and the German Arbitration Institute (DIS). In this capacity Alexander contributed to the official Russian translation of the 2018 DIS Arbitration Rules and published a short commentary on the rules in Russian.
