If your business crosses borders, disputes can arise across several jurisdictions; our international team can provide you with the strategic advice and experience which you will need to resolve matters. With particular expertise in international arbitration, we can represent you in the UK and across the world.
Whatever your business, our focus is on minimising your risk, acting swiftly to protect you in the most effective way and taking action in the right on as many fronts as necessary to resolve your problem.
We work with multinational corporations and international traders – our recent experience involved successfully representing a client in a multi-million US dollar claim against a multi-national corporation’s subsidiary. The proceedings, in the Netherlands Arbitration Institute, involved factual witnesses and legal experts from Russia, Kazakhstan, the UK, BVI and Germany among others.
We have advised international clients on arbitration under the ICC rules, whether in relation to supply agreements, breach of contract, joint ventures, data protection or bankruptcy issues, and represented them throughout.
We work in a broad range of sectors, including energy, manufacturing, construction and engineering, competition, banking and insolvency and consumer protection.
International arbitration – We regularly represent clients in international arbitration in various forums under all the major arbitral rules (including ICC, LCIA, NAI, ICSID, LMAA and ad hoc arbitrations).
Cross-border and multi-jurisdictional dispute resolution – we have experience conducting litigation in various jurisdictions whether as part of your global strategy with multiple proceedings in different jurisdictions, because of a problem reaching across a number of jurisdictions or an isolated issue in a foreign jurisdiction.
Applications in support of principle foreign proceedings – our team also represents clients in court applications for worldwide freezing orders, disclosure and other relief in support of principle proceedings overseas.
