ILEX stands for International Litigation Exchange. ILEX is a new think tank for the exchange and promotion of legal ideas concerning international and cross-border litigation. ILEX focusses on court litigation in complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes as a result of increasingly international business relations. ILEX seeks to address all kinds of legal, procedural and practical challenges of international dispute resolution and aims at discussing topical issues as well as the wider theoretical and practical foundations of international disputes. The exchange of ideas and the events organized by ILEX provide a forum for legal practitioners, academics and decision-makers in Germany and beyond interested in international litigation.
ILEX is an initiative by German lawyers working in international law firms and inhouse counsel involved in cross-border litigation. Its founders are Alexandra Diehl (Clifford Chance), Heiko Heppner (Clifford Chance), Clemens-August Heusch (Nokia), Roland Kläger (Haver & Mailänder), Anke Meier (Noerr), Miriam Nabinger (Fresenius Medical Care) and Jan Schäfer (King & Spalding).
