We are a dynamic team of international arbitration lawyers. We are conflict free and expert across numerous jurisdictions and sectors.
We have extensive experience of cases seated in London and other arbitral centres around the world.
Our global client base trusts us because our lawyers offer outcome-focused, commercial advice. In doing so, our lawyers draw on insights from their appointments as arbitrators, as well as from senior in-house and third party funding roles.
By listening to our clients, we ensure that the process for each case reflects their requirements. This includes:
- Liaising with our client’s other advisors to ensure a seamless service that meets the client’s needs regarding the dispute and their broader priorities
- Selecting arbitrators with appropriate experience, expertise and availability
- Designing and putting forward a bespoke procedure and timetable, and
- Providing dedicated resources at the appropriate level to ensure that their case is managed cost-effectively.
To enable our clients to adopt a proportionate approach to risk, we regularly put together or advise on innovative costs arrangements. These include risk-sharing fee agreements and, in appropriate cases, the use of third party funding.
