International Arbitration

Our arbitration practice has taken us to Bangkok, Hong Kong, Moscow, London, Sardinia, Kenya, Colombia, Canada, and Mexico. Arbitration is an excellent way to resolve sensitive private disputes out of the public court system as well as, for defendants, to gain a level of predictability that is sometimes not available in a state court system. Some examples of our matters include:

  • Representing smart phone manufacturer in a partnership dispute.
  • Prosecuted claims by Moscow-based company against Canadian and American entities involving mining rights in excess of $100 million.
  • Prosecuted claims by American company against Canadian companies for failure to pay millions of dollars in commodities shipped from Russia.
  • Prosecuted ICC claims on behalf of European and African software distributors against American software providers.
  • Defended Asian governmental authority in $60 million construction dispute.
  • Advised American and Swiss companies on expropriation and fair treatment claims under NAFTA and various bilateral investment treaties.
