Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz secured an arbitration award of more than $140 million for bank and insurance bondholders following a Eurobond default. The matter against the British Virgin Islander bond issuer, the Egyptian guarantor companies, and two individual owners was found to involve fraud and misappropriations of assets.
Case Study
Mintz secured an award of more than $10 million after an eight-day arbitration for an automotive supplier that is a portfolio company of a Mintz private equity client. The automotive supplier had sued a truck manufacturing company for contract violations.
Case Study
Mintz secured awards of over $21 million and $26 million in multinational arbitrations for digital consumer product manufacturer Tatung Company. The matter was split into a breach of contract case against an electronics wholesaler and an alter ego case against its parent company and CEO.

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.
