International Arbitration

Hong Kong

Arbitration is your dispute resolution mechanism of choice when you need flexibility, enforceability and an award which reflects the realities and complexities of your business. You need arbitrators and advisers who are comfortable with the technical detail and know the arbitral rules and institutions inside out.

Consistently ranked as one of the world’s busiest and most successful international arbitration practices, our team has a significant track record in international arbitration, whatever the law applicable to the dispute, the language of the arbitration, the seat of the hearing or the arbitration rules under which the dispute is to be resolved.

Through our sector-based approach, a large proportion of our disputes work is conducted in arbitration proceedings. Our team has particular expertise in the maritime sector including extensive knowledge of maritime courts and tribunals. These may be ad hoc, institutional or trade-based and include arbitrations under the rules of the LMAA, LCIA, ICC, HKIAC, CIETAC, CMAC, SIAC, SCMA, GAFTA, FOSFA, RSA and others.
