International Arbitration

We are always up for a challenge – whether that’s a multi-million case, a matter of unique legal nature, a highly sensitive dispute or all of them combined. Whatever help you may need with international arbitration, you can rely on us to provide you with a full spectrum of knowledge and skills appropriate for your individual case. We draw on the competences available across all our offices to work as one team, and with a whole team of lawyers on your case you can be sure that all aspects will receive careful consideration, regardless of whether our role is as a local or lead counsel. Our arbitration team has a track record of successful high-profile disputes involving major claims, state and investor representation and highly complex landmark cases. Because of their established reputation, in-depth knowledge of law, solid experience and language skills, our specialists often sit as arbitrators for local, regional and international arbitration institutions, including the ICC and SCC. Many of our people on the arbitration team are public opinion leaders, and as such are great at simplifying complex issues so that everyone can understand their essence.

Arbitration team with in-depth experience

We bring together a diverse team of lawyers from different backgrounds, speaking multiple languages, and with a broad range of legal training and experience with arbitration, so that each case we work on receives the tailor-made approach it deserves. Collaborating with arbitration specialists from various offices, we ensure our clients are thoroughly prepared from Day One and understand the nuances of arbitration. Where need be, our clients receive individual training for cross-examination or even a full mock-arbitration prior to the hearing. Commercial arbitration, investment arbitration – our area of expertise is not limited but expanded by each case we work on.

During commercial arbitration cases, we have represented clients before such leading arbitration institutions as the ICC, LCIA, SCC, SIAC and VIAC, as well as other regional and local institutions; our track record also includes ad hoc arbitration. In investment arbitration we have helped clients with assessments of potential cases as well as with hands-on involvement in the arbitration proceedings.
