Our lawyers handle some of the most complex, high-value and strategically important international arbitrations in the world, working closely with our clients to determine and achieve their commercial objectives in a quick and cost-effective manner. We advise on all aspects of arbitration, from drafting suitable clauses to advising on the type and seat of arbitration, the formation of a tribunal, arbitral procedure and enforcement of the award.
