Arbitration

Our lawyers are very experienced in providing legal representation in all types of arbitration related disputes, typically arising from varied industry sectors such as oil & gas/energy, mining & natural resources, transport, aviation, shipping and other commercial undertakings. Our arbitration experience covers commercial, investment treaty/investor-state, institutional and ad hoc arbitrations. Our lawyers are familiar with many and varied arbitration rules and are routinely instructed on international arbitration matters seated in London, Paris, The Hague, New York, Washington DC, Dubai, Hong Kong, Lagos, and other less familiar arbitration venues. We have been engaged to bring or defend arbitration claims, including a recent successful claim and judgment against a sovereign State, and have advised on appeals to challenge arbitral awards, particularly under the English Arbitration Act 1996. In January 2018 we demonstrated our international experience with a successful landmark and precedent-setting arbitration enforcement judgment for our client against a sovereign West African State, arising from an ICC arbitration seated in London. Where the subject matter involves foreign law, we are able to coordinate and liaise with local counsel and/or experts, when required. Most of our team members are fully trained arbitrators and mediators who often take appointments and are available for appointment as arbitrators/mediators, in London or elsewhere.
