International arbitration

International arbitration is increasingly the preferred option for resolving international disputes. Our international arbitration group is ranked among the world’s top 30 international arbitration practices by the leading international arbitration journal Global Arbitration Review (GAR).

We are already the preferred choice of many leading financial institutions, states, corporations and investors looking for first-class international arbitration expertise, global reach and deep industry experience.

Our global team has more than 30 specialist lawyers based in the key centres of arbitration, including London, Paris, Zurich, Geneva, Stockholm, Vienna, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Singapore and Dubai.

We have significant experience of all the major arbitral institutions (including ICC, LCIA, ICSID, SCC, CIETAC, AAA, HKIAC, SIAC and Swiss Rules as well as ad-hoc proceedings under the UNCITRAL rules) in all the major arbitral seats and under many different substantive laws.

In addition to law and practice, drafting, advocacy and enforcement of awards, our international expertise extends to negotiation, mediation and other early resolution mechanisms.

As well as arbitrating international commercial disputes, members of our team specialise in investment arbitration and public international law including boundary disputes and sanctions.

Many of our lawyers are advocates as well as arbitrators and are qualified in both civil and common law jurisdictions. We work in numerous languages.

Our lawyers are also frequently appointed to sit as arbitrators in ICC, LCIA, Swiss Rules, SIAC, CIETAC, ICSID and ad-hoc proceedings. Several are members of international arbitration bodies such as the ICC International Court of Arbitration, the ICC Commission on Arbitration, the LCIA and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
