Working with colleagues in a variety of jurisdictions we provide global resources, experience and advice on a range of complex contentious issues which can arise for corporate organisations. This can include corporate (disputes arising from mergers and acquisitions e.g. warranty claims, joint ventures), commercial, commercial agency, financial services, insolvency, information technology, intellectual property, property, construction, shipping, transport, court applications, expert determinations, judicial review, professional indemnity, breach of fiduciary duty, director’s liability, shareholder disputes, disputes between companies and directors, partnership disputes, regulatory work, negligence, fraud, emergency court applications including freezing orders and search/seizure injunctions.
Our aim is to achieve the best possible outcome bearing in mind our client’s commercial objectives. We provide advice to pre-empt or minimise the risk of a dispute arising. If a dispute is inevitable then we advise on the process that will best resolve the dispute at hand, whether litigation, arbitration, mediation, expert determination or other forms of ADR, and the best place globally to try to resolve or determine the dispute. Clients benefit from our team’s multilingual capability in significant business languages e.g. English, French, Mandarin.
International arbitration can provide an effective method of resolving cross border disputes without the potential cost, delays, stress, risk and publicity of transnational litigation. We have a breadth of experience in handling all types of institutional and ad hoc arbitrations so we are well placed to offer guidance on all aspects of arbitration from advising on the type and seat of arbitration, drafting arbitration clauses, formation of the tribunal and its procedure, to the enforcement of the award.
