Nicole Boehler, a US litigator based in Germany, is the managing partner of our Boblingen office and regularly bridges the divide between the expectations of her German clients and the realities of the US legal system. Her product liability and class action defense practice – which spans a wide range of globally marketed products, including motor vehicles, aircraft, power tools and machinery – has imbued her with a keen appreciation of the significant differences between the two systems, along with an ability to communicate those differences in language all parties understand.
Fluent in English and German, Nicole also possesses a firm understanding of engineering and electronic discovery speak, two mainstays of her practice. Her technical grasp of both the products and business goals of her clients gives her the ability to communicate effectively. At the same time, her in-depth knowledge of the rules of US discovery and eDiscovery – which are often alien to her German clients – proves invaluable when those clients are compelled to produce discoverable materials for US courts.
Nicole also helps clients avoid litigation by setting up and managing international litigation coordination programs so as to minimize regulatory and safety-related liability risks, both civil and criminal. In addition, she advises international clients on entity formation and contracts from a risk management perspective.
