International Dispute Resolution

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating unprecedented disruption to businesses’ global operations. Organizations with cross-border interests are facing a myriad of issues related to the crisis, from supply chain interruption, to contract disputes, and more, that likely will require legal counsel. With lawyers located in the UK, Europe, the U.S. and Asia, we have broad experience in key international markets – built upon firsthand knowledge of local business and legal customs – and can help clients protect and advance their business interests.

Together with our affiliate firm, C&M International (CMI) – an international policy and regulatory affairs consulting firm – and our International Trade Group, we provide pre-dispute counseling on investment decisions and dispute resolution clauses, pre-arbitration assistance on potential geopolitical approaches to resolving disputes, representation in international arbitrations, and litigation to enforce arbitral awards. We view dispute resolution and litigation as a means to achieve your strategic aims and an opportunity to protect and expand revenue, whether through the courts or arbitral bodies or by exploring commercially negotiated outcomes.
