Litigation, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution

Throughout our international network, dispute resolution lawyers represent global businesses on litigation, arbitration and mediation matters.

We have broad experience in corporate risk and conflict management, advising senior level board members and executives of substantial corporates and banks. Our global network also includes many experienced former prosecutors, enabling us to represent clients effectively in the most difficult and sophisticated government investigations.

We provide a full and comprehensive service in most of the world’s major countries and have dealt with many of the problems generated by changes in the financial marketplace meaning that our network is ideally placed to handle the growing number of cross-border disputes. It is this ability to manage disputes around the world and to coordinate cross-border proceedings that persuades many of our clients to instruct us.

We actively pursue all avenues of dispute resolution available and advise clients on choosing the method most appropriate to them and to a particular matter. Our main priority is to resolve disputes quickly and effectively with as little disruption to business as possible – recognition of this is central to how we approach any matter.
