Michael Wietzorek

Michael negotiates contracts and represents clients before state courts and in arbitration proceedings, for example under the rules of the ICC, DIS, or UNCITRAL. He advises all kinds of companies on purchasing, sales, and distribution (e-commerce, commercial agency, and authorized dealer or franchise systems).

Michael actively supports students in their education, in particular through his involvement in moot courts - simulated court and arbitration hearings. In addition to his work as an arbitrator in these hearings and the organisation of practice pleadings, Michael is one of the founding directors of the initiative "Africa in the Moot", which supports universities from Africa in their participation in international commercial law and international commercial arbitration moot courts. In this context, he has acted and continues to act as a team coach for the Eduardo Mondlane University in Maputo, Mozambique, the National University of Lesotho, and the University of Rwanda for the Annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, the Vis Moot East in Hong Kong, and the Alfred Deakin International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Melbourne. 

Together with Donata von Enzberg, Michael is one of two gender champions for Taylor Wessing Germany in the DIS-ERA Pledge Gender Champion Initiative, thereby promoting parity in international arbitration through self-monitoring.

He is listed as an arbitrator by the Centre of Arbitration, Conciliation and Mediation in Maputo, Mozambique and the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Moldova.
