Our Approach

We help our clients avoid costly disputes or, when that is not possible, to win them. To begin, we can help you put in place practical, effective, formal, and informal mechanisms for dealing with disputes. Thus, we regularly become involved at the contracting stage to draft beneficial dispute resolution provisions. When a dispute cannot be avoided, we focus first on your objectives in light of the legal, commercial, reputational, and other risks presented in each case. Our aim is to bring disputes to an early and successful conclusion.

​International Arbitration

International arbitration is the preferred method of resolving cross-border disputes. The neutrality it offers, together with the relative ease of enforceability of awards, can make it a more attractive forum for disputes than litigating in contracting parties' national courts. Its sophistication continues to develop and its popularity grow.

Our team has particular experience in a number of substantive areas including handling disputes related to joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, licensing and collaboration, insurance and reinsurance, and intellectual property. Our lawyers have been involved in international arbitrations (and ancillary litigations) involving parties, transactions, projects, evidence, or assets in, for example, Abu Dhabi, Austria, Bahrain, Canada, the People’s Republic of China, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Oman, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.
