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 arbitral and court hearings. He is currently acting as one of two coaches for the National University of Lesotho in the Alfred Deakin International Commercial Arbitration Moot, which is scheduled to take place in Melbourne, Australia, in September. Earlier this year, in addition to his work as an arbitrator in and organiser of practice pleadings, he coached the first team of University Eduardo Mondlane in Maputo, Mozambique in its participation in the Vis Moot East and the Annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot and won the Michael L. Sher Award with the team in Vienna. Together with international colleagues, he launched the initiative "Africa in the Moot", which aims to support more universities from Africa in the future.

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.
