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. Our previous and recent experience includes a string of success in ad hoc and institutional arbitration matters, including a successful enforcement of an ICC arbitration seated in London against a West African State, as well as representation of parties in ongoing arbitration proceedings. We possess tremendous wealth of experience and grasp of all aspects of arbitration - whether as a distinct and specialised area of law as well as a formidable and practical know-how of the arbitral practice and procedure. As vastly experienced practitioners, we recognise the importance of not only winning an arbitration claim, but more importantly we are able to take the necessary strategic and often complex steps that culminate in the successful enforcement of an arbitral award.
