Dispute Resolution

Meet the team

A DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF COMPLEX, HIGH VALUE DISPUTES AROUND THE GLOBE GIVES US THE TOOLS TO PROVIDE FIRST CLASS ADVICE.

Our dispute resolution lawyers are world leaders in our specialist sectors of energy (mining & commodities, oil & gas and power), infrastructure (construction & engineering and real estate) and transport (maritime and aviation). Offering in-depth sector knowledge and practical, commercial advice, we consistently secure effective solutions for our clients, co-ordinating across jurisdictions to ensure we can assist them wherever they do business.

We regularly advise clients including banks, PE funds and other financial institutions on disputes ranging from sector-specific matters in front of specialist tribunals through to investment treaty arbitrations. Each of our offices has expertise in commercial litigation in front of its national courts and, globally, we work together to handle high-value, complex multi-jurisdictional disputes.

Ranging from advising on the contentious aspects of asset and project finance to restructuring and insolvency, our clients benefit from our pragmatic and responsive support, including how best to proactively mitigate and manage dispute risk. In particular, our maritime finance enforcement experience is second to none. We also offer expertise in competition, regulatory and investigative matters and criminal litigation (including corporate, D&O defence and compliance advice).

We have substantial experience representing clients in high value international arbitrations conducted in various institutions across the world, including ADCCAC, DIAC, DIFC-LCIA, HKIAC, ICC, ICSID, LCIA, LMAA, QICCA, SCC and SIAC. A number of our partners accept appointments as arbitrators.

Resolving a dispute need not always involve formal proceedings. Where possible, we work hard to avoid disputes and regularly advise on alternative dispute resolution, including mediation.
