Their arbitration practitioners work in highly-specialized, multilingual teams (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic) with an understanding of the business strategies and priorities of Orrick’s energy and infrastructure, finance, and technology clients. They arbitrate million- and billion-dollar disputes relating to M&A and financial structuring transactions, turn-key infrastructure construction projects, worldwide commodities trading contracts, telecommunications and IT agreements, oil & gas, including long-term natural gas supply price reviews, renewable energy projects in solar and wind, life sciences licensing and intellectual property matters.

They obtain from national courts provisional measures ancillary to arbitration, enforce awards against assets traced through investigation, and conduct proceedings to set aside arbitral awards.
