Georg Naegeli is a partner in Homburger's litigation/arbitration practice team. He joined Homburger in 2000, after having served as a state court judge for 10 years. He represents clients in commercial disputes in international arbitration and before state courts, always with a view to finding the right balance between fighting for the client's interests and reaching a compromise when appropriate. Georg holds various assignments as chair or member of institutional and ad hoc arbitral tribunals.

From 2008–2012, he was a member of the Court of Cassation Zurich, from 1993–2000 an alternate judge at Commercial and the Appellate Court of Zurich, and from 1990–2000 a judge at the District Court of Zurich. He was admitted to the Bar in 1986, and received his Dr iur in 1984 and his master (lic iur) in 1980, both from the University of Zurich.

Georg has published numerous articles on procedural, arbitral, and insolvency related issues. Recent publications include commentaries on the articles 25-26 and 53-58 of the Lugano Convention (in Kommentar zum Lugano-Übereinkommen, Stämpfli, Bern 2011), “When a Party to an International Arbitration goes Bankrupt: A Swiss Perspective" (Austrian Yearbook on International Arbitration 2016), and commentaries on the articles 219-242 of the Swiss Code of Civil Procedure (Kurzkommentar Schweizerische Zivilprozessordnung, Helbling Lichtenhahn, 2010).
