The group has a truly international feel, operating throughout all of the major financial cities in the world.
Our team includes partners and associates based Europe, across Continental Europe, the Middle East, Singapore, Hong Kong and China. We have advised clients in international commercial arbitration in relation to, and have been involved in arbitral proceedings seated in, various fora, including London, New York, Switzerland, Paris, Singapore, Shanghai, The Hague, Madrid, Milan, Stockholm, Santiago, and Warsaw, with disputes including those governed by the laws of New York, England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Poland, and Singapore.
We have extensive experience of representing clients in arbitrations, including under the rules of the world's leading arbitral institutions (ICC, LCIA, AAA/ICDR, CIETAC, ICSID, WIPO, SIAC, Swiss Rules) and in ad hoc arbitrations (UNCITRAL).
As an international team of experts in international arbitration and foreign investment law, we are able to provide our clients with an appreciation of the laws and procedures in jurisdictions local to the dispute, ensuring access to legal advice as well as representation at all stages of the proceedings. This includes jurisdictional and merit phases, applications relating to protective measures in support of arbitral proceedings as well as enforcement of or annulment to arbitral awards.
