Public international law
Globalisation has brought an increasing focus on public international law. As one of the leading law firms in this area of law, we are regularly instructed by sovereign states, state entities, international bodies and multinational corporations on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious matters.
Our global team comprises 15 lawyers mainly based in Europe but also working from our offices across the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
This includes numerous state-to-state cases before the International Court of Justice and international tribunals, either in ad-hoc proceedings or those administered by the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
Our non-contentious work includes advising on:
- State responsibility
- Sovereign immunity
- International sanctions
- Land and maritime boundary delimitation
- Territorial sovereignty
- Treaty obligations
- The law of international organisations
We also regularly assist clients in relation to bilateral investment treaties and associated investment structuring.
