Do you disagree with a court decision? You may be able to lodge an appeal against it, but you will need legal representation. VIOTTA’s lawyers have extensive experience of appeal proceedings, as well as with litigation in the first instance.


The conditions for appeal

Not all decisions can be appealed. This is only possible if the following conditions are met:

  • You have a lawyer to represent you in the appeal proceedings.
  • The financial interest of your case is greater than EUR 1,750.
  • The judgment in the first instance was rendered less than three months prior to the lodging of the appeal.
  • The term for lodging an appeal after a decision has been rendered in preliminary relief proceedings is four weeks.

Engaging a lawyer at VIOTTA for your appeal assures you of expert assistance. From start to finish – and by finish we also mean the period after the appeal. The outcome of the appeal may give rise to settlement negotiations or mediation with which we would also be pleased to assist you. If you disagree with the appellate decision, we can also assist you with lodging an appeal with the Supreme Court. As always, we can call on our international network of lawyers to strive for a positive outcome.
