Our International Arbitration Practice operates on a global basis, with some of the most experienced lawyers practicing in the field today throughout our offices in the US and Europe.
We represent multinational corporations, international organizations and sovereign entities in cases brought under the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the International Centre for Dispute Resolution of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), as well as the London Court of International Arbitration, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, the Beijing Arbitration Commission, and the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board, among others.

Regardless of size, we leverage our knowledge of the relevant procedure and our appreciation for the different style of lawyering appropriate in the international arbitration context.
