International Arbitration

We enforce arbitration clauses in agreements and dealing with international arbitrations whether they are governed by ad hoc or institutional arbitration rules such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) or the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). We advise our clients on each stage of the arbitral process, including negotiations and enforcement of the award.

Enforcing Foreign Judgments and Arbitration Awards

If you have a judgment or award you want to enforce which has been litigated or arbitrated abroad, we can represent you on commencing enforcement proceedings in England and Wales if your opponent is located here. We can also employ our network of lawyers in other jurisdictions in order to help you enforce any judgment or award.
