We are proud to announce that our Salary Partner Nico Köppel will take over – together with Dr. Daniel Engel (Hengeler Müller) – the coordination of the DIS40 Regional Group Munich. We congratulate Nico Köppel on this new role and are looking forward to many interesting events!

The DIS40 is an initiative of young arbitration practitioners under the auspices of the German Arbitration Institute (DIS). The initiative is the leading forum for German arbitration practitioners below 40 to network and exchange practical experiences. The Regional Coordinators of the DIS40 organise the local activities of the initiative. Among these activities is the coordination of regular networking and advanced training events. The Regional Group Munich belongs – together with Frankfurt – to the most vital groups of the DIS40.
