A Leader in International Arbitration

Our international arbitration and dispute resolution team provides trusted advice and vigorous representation for both investment and international commercial disputes covering every continent.

We work with commercial party clients and sovereigns across the globe. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling our clients’ complex matters, tenaciously advancing their positions and getting the results our clients seek in their high-stakes, cross-border disputes, including international arbitration dispute resolution, international commercial arbitration and investor-state/investment arbitration.

Our lawyers are qualified in common law and civil law systems, speak multiple languages and operate from offices in New York, London, Dubai and across the United States.

We have significant experience under multiple substantive laws in arbitral fora under the rules of all major international arbitration institutions, particularly including the ICC, ICSID, AAA/ICDR, LCIA, SIAC, UNCITRAL and DIS. Our lawyers also hold leadership roles with these institutions, playing a key role in the shaping of arbitration rules and practice around the world.

Our advocacy is informed by the perspective of decision makers. Many of our senior practitioners regularly serve as arbitrators appointed by the parties or arbitral institutions.

We work with original-language documents, interview witnesses in their native language and offer advice in the client’s language of choice. We are regularly in touch with leading expert witnesses in the field. We advise clients at every stage of the dispute resolution process, from the drafting of dispute resolution clauses to the initiation and conduct of proceedings, through to the enforcement of arbitral awards. We also advise on alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and dispute boards, and can provide guidance on the best dispute resolution options in any given situation.
