Morgan Lewis

International Arbitration

The International Arbitration Practice combines litigation strategy, creative legal analysis, and knowledge of intercultural dynamics to move between the arenas of international arbitration and international business litigation as necessary. Our team of highly regarded arbitration lawyers has handled significant disputes in the Americas, Europe, Russia/CIS, Africa, and the Middle East. We provide counsel for all types of international arbitration matters including those involving joint ventures as well as other commercial and boundary disputes. Our lawyers have represented clients under all of the principal international arbitration rules and have experience in both civil and common law. With a wide variety of industry knowledge and experience in many venues, we are able to propose creative business solutions and vigorously defend our clients’ interests when no amicable solution appears possible.

Our lawyers have acted as counsel, testified or consulted as expert witnesses, and served as the sole arbitrators or as part of an arbitral tribunal in many international arbitrations, including proceedings under the arbitration rules of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the American Arbitration Association International, the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, and the Society of Maritime Arbitrators.

Because obtaining success for our clients often goes beyond the arbitration process itself, Morgan Lewis’s International Arbitration Practice also advises clients in ancillary proceedings, such as mediation, attachments, injunctions, and enforcement proceedings worldwide. Our lawyers have also served on various international panels and committees, including the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, and the International Arbitration Committee, Section of International Law, American Bar Association.
