Arbitration is a formal dispute resolution process conducted in private. The dispute is submitted, by agreement of the parties, to the arbitral tribunal, comprising one or more arbitrators, that will render an award binding on the parties (in the sense that it can be annuled only for exceptional reasons).
Arbitration is designed to meet the needs of the modern business world. Its goal is to provide a direct route to justice that avoids lengthy and expensive proceedings.
The practice of international arbitration in particular (because of the variouse juridictions and legal systems that may intersect in one international arbitration proceeding, of the specific rules) needs sound theoretical knowledge and solid expertise.
We advise on all aspects of arbitration, from drafting suitable clauses to advising on the type and seat of arbitration, the formation of a tribunal, arbitral procedure and enforcement of the award. Whether it’s domestic or international arbitration, we are used to handle complex, high-value and strategically important cases.
