Understanding technical, legal, commercial and reputational risks we devise optimum strategies focusing on our clients’ commercial objectives. We focus on the effective delivery of our clients' commercial objectives with utmost efficiency and minimum cost.
Our experience in the area of commercial negotiation often helps to achieve more client-satisfactory results more promptly than the formal dispute resolution processes.
We are able to design appropriate dispute resolution plans encompassing litigation, arbitration, expert determination or alternative dispute resolution for construction claims and other claims (including representing our clients in proceedings in litigation and in arbitration).
We recognise that litigation and arbitration are no longer the only processes for clients seeking legal remedies to enforce or defend their commercial positions; increasingly we are providing advice on pre-dispute resolution processes and representing parties in mediations, before dispute boards, expert determinations, adjudications and tailored dispute resolution processes.
When necessary, we collaborate with local lawyers and experts from different jurisdictions from both civil and common law systems and assist our clients in resolving and managing disputes efficiently and with minimum disruption to their business.
We are familiar with the rules and procedures of major institutions including:
- International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)
- International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID)
- London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA)
- Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC)
and inter alia with the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration.
We also provide advice on the bringing or defending claims challenging arbitration agreements and choosing the right strategy for enforcing or challenging arbitral awards in courts.
