Especially renowned for its banking and finance expertise, acclaimed for its handling of investment treaty-related disputes and those arising in the energy and resources and infrastructure sectors, and fully equipped to provide its own advocacy, both in arbitration proceedings and in enforcement and other ancillary litigation. Also notably involved in commercial arbitrations, representing private equity firms and investors, and noted for its ability to coordinate effort across several offices, including its Perth branch, as well as its prominence in South Korea and Singapore.


A client who says of this team: "You'd want to go to them for arbitration," goes on to emphasise both its "top-notch" quality and "multi-jurisdictional capabilities."

A fellow legal professional observes: "I think it's an excellent arbitration practice; they know exactly what they're doing, they have more than enough prestige in the arbitration world and they are even involved in the advocacy as equal partners with barristers."
