International arbitration is widely accepted as the preferred means of resolving cross-border disputes between commercial parties.

Our internationally-recognised arbitration team has substantial experience and expertise across a wide range of industry sectors and geographical locations. Our team regularly conducts international arbitration proceedings under the rules of many of the world’s leading arbitral institutions, including ICC, SIAC, HKIAC, CIETAC, UNCITRAL and ACICA.

International disputes can be high risk. They often involve complex legal issues, conflict of laws, jurisdictional challenges and parallel litigation and/or arbitration. Mitigating the risks associated with cross-border disputes starts with an effective and enforceable dispute resolution clause.

We provide front end advice to help clients protect their international investment, drawing on our experience and understanding of the latest trends and developments in international dispute resolution. We are familiar with both ad hoc and institutional arbitration and with a range of alternative dispute resolution processes, and understand cultural nuances in the dispute context. We work together with clients to take advantage of international conventions which reduce investment exposure.

When a dispute arises, our deep experience enables us to provide insightful, pragmatic and strategic advice. Our strong long-term relationships with leading law firms around the world ensure prompt access to specialist lawyers wherever required, and our market-leading legal technology solutions facilitate innovative and seamless service across multiple jurisdictions and time zones.

Our knowledge and experience assure that we will find the very best solution for our clients in any cross-border commercial dispute.
