Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Future Leaders - Partners

Philipp Wagner is a German attorney based in Berlin and admitted to the New York Bar. As an arbitration practitioner, he serves both as party counsel and as arbitrator to parties and clients around the world.

His relevant arbitration experience pertains in particular to fields such as corporate, M&A, distribution, commercial, renewable energy and real estate disputes. Philipp has extensive expertise as party-appointed and sole arbitrator and as chairman of the arbitral tribunal under various arbitration institutions and rules, such as DIS, GMAA, ICC, SCC and UNCITRAL.

Prior to setting up Wagner Arbitration in 2013, which has since grown into a team of three legal professionals, he was a partner and responsible for the arbitration practice of a larger German corporate law firm. Philipp also serves as a member of the supervisory board of a large German stock exchange-listed real estate company.

Philipp holds a law degree from Humboldt-University, Berlin, an LLM degree from Emory University in Atlanta, and a doctorate degree from Rostock University with an award-winning thesis on international insolvency law and arbitration. In addition to his bar admissions in Berlin and New York, both since 2005, he serves as trained and licensed mediator.

Philipp regularly publishes articles and book contributions and teaches as lecturer at Humboldt-University in the field of international commercial law and arbitration, most recently within the frames of the new LLM programme on international dispute resolution, which he helped to set up.

His working languages include German, French and English.

WWL says: Philipp Wagner is “a truly innovative lawyer” who is known for his “calm and controlled style” when acting both as arbitrator and counsel. ‚Äč
