Our clients benefit not only from our in-depth industry knowledge and particular expertise in the area of private international, commercial and procedural law but also from the fact that Allen & Overy can count on the services of highly experienced specialists when it comes to advising and representing our clients in national and international arbitration proceedings (ad-hoc and institutional proceedings) and for arbitrator work (chair, sole arbitrator, party-nominated arbitrator).
