International Dispute Resolution

When you have a dispute, you want it resolved quickly and amicably, whilst keeping costs to a minimum and getting the best possible outcome. You need lawyers who can quickly grapple with the facts, with a genuine understanding of your commercial pressures, deep sector expertise and the ability to move nimbly to seize upon an opportunity when the moment strikes.

Our clients come to us with these expectations and that’s exactly what we work hard to deliver, every time. By working closely with our non-contentious colleagues, we can guide you from the very start of the dispute to assess your risk and help you avoid costly litigation. Renowned for our tech-savvy approach, we’re able to spot potential issues on the horizon in ever-evolving areas such as data privacy litigation, product liability, insurance claims, collective redress and class actions, and fraud investigations.

In circumstances where litigation isn’t the right course of action, our experienced team can guide you through the alternative options, such as arbitration (commercial and investment treaty) and mediation. No matter where in the world you are based, our team of international arbitrators can help you navigate the rules of the world's leading arbitral institutions (ICC, LCIA, AAA/ICDR, CIETAC, ICSID, WIPO) as well as ad hoc arbitrations (UNCITRAL).

With a global presence, we’re here to ease the pressure during your most challenging situations.
