Our work with clients

We’ve thought about our work, and how we deliver, as providing critical support for our clients through every stage of their life cycle. To help you grow your footprint or raise capital, or even shed assets, we offer a comprehensive suite of world-class transactional services.

Our multi-jurisdictional regulatory capabilities are second to none, and help clients sustain a hard-fought position or enter a new market. And those of us skilled in navigating disputes can help protect you from today’s contentious issues, wherever they arise -- and prepare you for what tomorrow might bring.

International arbitration

We have a dedicated team of lawyers that has been at the forefront of international arbitration for over 30 years.

We know the process, the institutions and the arbitrators better than any of our competitors. We combine this understanding with industry knowledge, geographical reach and commitment to the highest standards of service that we’re told other arbitration practices cannot match.

We’ve been described as standing ‘apart at the top of the worldwide ranking’ and as ‘far and away the best firm for international arbitration and the ideal standard for any team in this practice area’. This is why clients come to us with their most complex, sensitive and high-value arbitrations.

We advise clients at every stage, from drafting sophisticated arbitration clauses to enforcing arbitral awards, and we’re recognised leaders in both treaty-based arbitrations and international commercial arbitrations in every major arbitral jurisdiction around the world.

We also help clients with innovative investment treaty planning strategies.
