International Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

The dispute resolution team’s experience, varied jurisdictional practices, and broad linguistic skills enable us to offer clear guidance and advice to meet our clients’ needs. The firm’s dispute resolution team has extensive experience handling cross-border and domestic litigation and arbitration matters — acting for public, private, government and nonprofit clients from varied industries and jurisdictions. The team has particular experience managing complex multijurisdictional disputes involving many areas of practice, including financial services, energy, insolvency-related cases, shareholder disputes, intellectual property and contractual, tort, and fraud matters across a wide variety of industries and sectors. Such disputes often involve coordinating global asset tracing and recovery efforts, as well as obtaining and defending applications for freezing orders and other injunctive relief.

We also have well-established practices in EU and UK competition law, government investigations and anticorruption, in the UK and the United States. We handle audits, compliance, investigation and defense work in this arena. Clients not only benefit from our experience, but also from our team members’ varied jurisdictional practices and broad linguistic skills that enable us to offer clear, strategic and commercial advice to international and domestic clients. In doing so, we help clients resolve disputes in a manner that achieves their objectives.

We also assist our clients in resolving disputes through alternative dispute resolution methods. Our primary aim is to help our clients by focusing on their commercial objectives and by selecting the approach for each case that will achieve the most commercially advantageous solution. Team strengths include our ability to work across all practice areas and to offer strategic assistance.

Representative Services include general and complex commercial litigation (intellectual property, banking, insolvency, shareholders’ disputes, contractual disputes, and fraud and breach of trust claims).

We also handle arbitration; domestic and worldwide freezing orders and injunctions; domestic and international enforcement; asset tracing and recovery; insurance and reinsurance; EU and UK competition law, and regulation and compliance (including that associated with the UK Bribery Act 2010).
