In a world with less and less privacy and more and more complexity, arbitration helps clients control costs, manage publicity, minimize forum risk and increase the predictability of outcomes.
With over 150 lawyers whose experience spans thousands of proceedings, clients depend on us every day for positive, predictable arbitration outcomes here and abroad, from smaller recurring cases, to large bilateral commercial arbitrations, to massive multiparty proceedings.
When our clients need to start an arbitration, we prosecute those matters vigorously. When our clients face claims in court that should be in arbitration, or claims in arbitration that should be in court, we are knowledgeable in the efforts needed to stay or move those claims to a different forum. When our clients face claims as respondents in an arbitration setting, we defend them fiercely.
As recognized leaders in the field, our lawyers frequently speak and publish on issues and trends related to arbitration. We also regularly help negotiate clauses and develop dispute resolution plans for clients who recognize the value of a practical perspective. We have drafted arbitration clauses used in over 100 million contracts and have developed specialized arbitration rules, both public and private.
