Arbitration is a private dispute resolution procedure in which a dispute is submitted, by agreement of the parties, to one or more arbitrators who make a binding decision on the dispute. In choosing arbitration, the parties opt for a private and, usually, confidential procedure instead of going to court.

We represent clients, and support lawyers in other jurisdictions, where English law applies. In cases where English law does not apply, we can recommend and work with trusted lawyers from other jurisdictions, including through our membership of the International Law Firm Association, which covers over 50 countries.

We specialise in both domestic and international arbitration, including those in the ICC, LCIA, LCAM, WIPO, HKIAC, SIAC and the SCC.

What we do:

  • Advise on the arbitration agreement, including the arbitration rules, jurisdiction and choice of law
  • Advise on the underlying merits of the claim or defence
  • Deal with all aspects of the arbitration and the enforcement of the award
  • Obtain and defending interim measures, in the Tribunal and Court
