Our international arbitration lawyers are recognised as experts by the leading directories. We have an impressive track record in advising international companies both in the UK and abroad in relation to conducting arbitration proceedings and enforcing international arbitration awards.
Our team is experienced in conducting arbitrations under major international arbitration rules and institutions, as well as ad hoc arbitrations, including UNCITRAL, ICC, ICSID, DIFC, LCIA, SIAC, CIETAC, SCC, WIPO, and in trade arbitrations such as LMAA and GAFTA.
Our team members also have experience in representing sovereign state bodies in investor-state arbitration under bilateral and multilateral investment treaties, including the Energy Charter Treaty.
We take a collaborative approach when working closely with international law firms in arbitrations where the governing law is not one in which we have qualified practitioners. We maintain a vibrant and effective international desk structure which services our international clients and contacts. We work closely with General Counsel offices, project and commercial managers, and senior legal executives, and we have experience of working with Government Ministries and their legal officers. We provide our clients with a pragmatic, partner-led approach to ensure that clients receive the advice they need to reach a resolution quickly and cost-effectively.
We have particular expertise in disputes in construction and engineering, commodities, energy, banking and financial services, insurance and reinsurance (including Bermuda Form arbitration), intellectual property, international trade, retail and sports.
The Commercial and Appeal Courts in London have in recent years seen a growth in cases relating to the Arbitration Act 1996. There were a significant number of reported decisions in 2018 and the first quarter of 2019.
In this Round Up our International Arbitration team has tried to capture and summarise the important cases that have emerged. We have grouped these together in order to reflect common themes and sections of the Arbitration Act 1996.
