We have substantial experience acting as counsel in international arbitrations whether:

  • Ad hoc or under all the major institutional rules
  • Seated in England & Wales or overseas
  • Subject to English or foreign law.

Our expertise includes a wide variety of commercial disputes, including those involving conflict of laws and cross border issues and allegations of fraud, and spans a multitude of sectors, including financial services, shareholder disputes, energy (and other natural resources) and transport (including aviation).

 

In recent years we have acted in arbitrations under the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration and the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC).

We are also experienced in litigation arising from arbitration and appear in High Court appeals against arbitration awards, challenges to jurisdiction, interim conservatory measures and enforcement under the New York Convention.

A number of our members are qualified to sit as arbitrators. For more information please see Mediation and arbitration.
