What our barristers do
Our barristers advise on all tactical and strategic matters involved in international arbitration, including drafting pleadings and memorials, advising on evidence and addressing any preliminary issues that arise.
Our barristers use their enormous experience in oral advocacy to tailor their approach when testing evidence or making oral submissions to accommodate the varied legal and cultural backgrounds and traditions of different international tribunals.
Our barristers also appear in litigation arising from arbitrations, including supportive injunctions, challenges to awards and on enforcement.
Who our barristers act for
Our barristers act for corporate clients engaged in international transactions and investments, who then use international arbitration to resolve disputes arising from the range of commercial arrangements. Those clients span the entire range of international trade and investment, from upstream energy and engineering, mining, infrastructure construction and shipbuilding to manufacturing, international trade, hotel operators, aviation and finance.
