Regional Groups

Networks & Young Talent


The DIS regional groups provide a forum for the practical exchange of experience among arbitration practitioners. They organise public regional events which are free to attend.

DIS regional groups exist in Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, Rhine/Ruhr and Stuttgart; in the North the Hamburg Arbitration Circle (HAC) has been established. The DIS regional groups are open to all DIS members. In-house counsel and those working in the public sector are also welcome to join, even if they are not members of the DIS. There are no age limits for membership in a regional group.

The DIS regional coordinators are responsible for organising all regional events.
