Neutrality, enforceability, finality and privacy are the main reasons that arbitration is the preferred choice of multinationals and SMEs alike for the resolution of international disputes.
However, its highly complex nature demands highly skilled legal expertise and that’s exactly what we offer.
We have dealt with over 200 different types of international arbitration proceedings, ranging from cases against public administrations for investment-related matters, right the way through to virtually every type of contractual, corporate and commercial dispute that can arise between companies of different nationalities.
We assist clients directly in the countries they operate in and have handled international arbitrations in a range of languages (e.g. English, French, Spanish) under various rules (ICC, LCIA, ICSID, SCC, CRCICA, DIAC), national laws and legal systems, in Africa, America, Europe and the Far and Middle East.
However, the excellence of our international arbitration team is not just based on their ability to handle cases under the various arbitration rules, but also on their in-depth knowledge of the various legal systems and business sectors. In fact, they also boast unparalleled expertise in international construction contracts, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate law, telecommunications, energy, and the full spectrum of commercial contracts.
Here’s what sets us apart
