We are committed to helping our clients solve their most difficult problems. Sometimes this means using our advocacy skills in litigation, but often it means resolving disputes outside of court, in a confidential forum. Arbitration is an ideal platform for this as it can be collaborative or adversarial, depending on the circumstances.

Many of our barristers have been instructed to represent clients in arbitration. They have particular strength in commercial, fraud matters many involving international clients and assets. Several of our barristers and associate members are accredited arbitrators also, which gives them insight into the process.
