International Arbitration is now for many businesses the default dispute resolution mechanism for cross-border transactions. Our specialist international arbitration team across the network advises on all aspects of arbitration law and practice - from the drafting of the arbitration clause in a contract to final hearing of disputes and beyond, including oral advocacy where required.

Our team is experienced in both international commercial and bilateral investment treaty arbitration and has conducted arbitrations under the leading arbitration rules, including those of the LCIA, SCC, ICC, DIS, ICSID and UNCITRAL. We also secure clients’ positions after an award, with a team experienced in dealing with both challenges to the award and enforcing against assets worldwide. We have extensive experience of cases in and/or involving parties from the US, Europe, Russia, the CIS and the Middle East.

Whatever and wherever the challenge, our goal is the same: to identify and analyse the key issues that will determine the outcome of  your case, to agree your objectives and to use our expertise to achieve them as quickly and efficiently as possible.
