International Arbitration lawyers

Arbitration is a good choice to resolve disputes when you need flexibility, enforceability and an award which reflects the realities and complexities of your business. To achieve this, particularly in industries like insurance, energy, construction, engineering and TMT, you will need arbitrators and advisers who are comfortable with the technical detail.

Consistently ranked in the Global Arbitration Review ‘GAR30’ of the world’s busiest international arbitration practices, our team has a significant track record in international arbitration, whatever the law applicable to the dispute, the language of the arbitration, the seat of the hearing or the arbitration rules under which the dispute is to be resolved. We also regularly advise on expert determinations, mediation and proceedings in the English courts.

You will look to avoid disputes, and resolve them when they do arise. You will have access to our award-winning training seminars on the legal implications of emerging business and regulatory issues, and to our Claims Academies, which teach your teams how to identify legal risks in your day to day business.
