Litigation, Arbitration and Investigations

As one of the world's leading disputes practices, Allen & Overy has vast experience of litigating, arbitrating, investigating and resolving corporate, employment, IP and commercial disputes across multiple jurisdictions.

In an increasingly volatile world, our understanding of the different legal and political landscapes in which our clients operate drives our approach to litigation and dispute resolution. We handle high-stakes, complex cases for some of the world’s most recognisable companies. 

With a global offering of over 40 offices across 31 countries, covering Europe, the U.S., the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific, our strength in handling multi-jurisdictional cases sets us apart from our competitors – be that concurrent investigations in multiple markets, significant litigation, international arbitration, or pre-emptive advice on risk mitigation and compliance with ever-evolving regulation.  

We pursue all avenues of dispute resolution and advise clients on the method most appropriate to achieving their commercial objectives and the specifics of a matter. At the heart of our approach is a focus on resolving disputes quickly and effectively with as little disruption to business as possible.
