A heavyweight international arbitration practice
We specialise in cross-border, multi-jurisdictional and complex international arbitration across a range of sectors which build, power, move and protect the global economy. Our presence on six continents has enabled us to build a particularly strong reputation in new and emerging markets.
We consistently have one of the largest dockets of arbitration of any firm in the GAR30 and have been described by the LCIA as its biggest single user by a large margin, in addition to being one of the largest users of the ICC. Many of our partners hold leading positions at arbitral institutions and several of our practitioners also regularly sit as arbitrators in a wide range of disputes.
Our international arbitration team has run some of the largest arbitrations to date and have acted on many high-profile and politically sensitive cases that have required careful management to ensure a favourable result for our clients. Using our extensive network of offices and mature team of arbitration specialists, we respond rapidly in high pressure scenarios, delivering a tailored, flexible service to meet the requirements of each individual dispute.
We advise our clients at every stage in the arbitration process – from commencement of the arbitration proceedings to enforcing arbitral awards or resisting challenges to awards. We consider the best course of action for our clients, whilst always being mindful of the potential economic benefit in achieving settlement where necessary.
