International Arbitration (Dispute Resolution)

International Arbitration

London has long been the centre for commercial and investment arbitration. It has also become the new home for many foreign, influential and high net worth business people; with many active in sectors such as oil, gas and other natural resources, where arbitration is often the preferred way of resolving disputes.

The relative ease with which arbitral awards can be enforced abroad, particularly when compared with High Court judgments, along with the confidential nature of arbitration proceedings have led to arbitration becoming an increasingly popular option for our clients.

Why we are different

We have cutting-edge experience, acting both as counsel and as arbitrators, involving all of the major arbitral institutions. We have conducted over a dozen investor-state arbitrations before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). We have also conducted many commercial arbitrations, subject to a variety of governing substantive and procedural laws, before the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) and many other institutions, as well as ad hoc arbitrations under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.

We work on matters for parties all over the world.  We have particular expertise in disputes in Africa and Asia/South Asia, but also in other regions including Eastern Europe, Russia and the CIS, the Middle East and the Caribbean. By way of example, we have represented clients in arbitrations seated in London, Paris, New York, Stockholm, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, New Delhi, Jakarta, Nairobi, Dar Es Salaam, Johannesburg, and many other places, working with local counsel where appropriate.

Our work spans a range of sectors, including energy, mining, construction, finance, telecommunications, shipping, real estate and life sciences.  Our lawyers are experienced in arbitration-related English High Court litigation and proceedings before other state courts, including injunction applications, investigatory and discovery efforts, and enforcement of arbitral awards.
