The lawyers in the International Arbitration Department at Stewarts Law have experience of not only the substantive law relating to international arbitration but also the effective and efficient conduct of arbitral proceedings.
Our team works with clients to design and implement a process tailor-made for the circumstances of each case we handle, from the selection of arbitrators with appropriate experience, expertise, and availability, to the adoption of a bespoke procedural timetable focused on the earliest available hearing window, and the allocation of dedicated resources at the appropriate level to ensure that the matter is managed cost-effectively for our clients.
Our philosophy is that arbitration, as an alternative to court proceedings, should be conducted by all participants in a way designed to ensure a swift and certain outcome, particularly in high-value, commercially sensitive matters where the resolution of the dispute is of critical importance to the parties.
The lawyers in our team accept appointments as arbitrators and can therefore provide unique insight into the approach and requirements of the arbitral tribunal. We have conducted arbitrations relating to numerous business sectors including the aviation, oil and gas, energy, pharmaceutical, telecommunications and defence manufacturing fields. We also have experience of advising clients with respect to the bringing of claims under investment treaties against sovereign states, on behalf of both claimant investors and respondent states.
We are a conflict-free litigation-only law firm and are trusted by major City, US and other international law firms to act for their clients when they are unable to act because of conflicts of interest.
