Arbitration & Mediation
Domestic and International Arbitration
We have extensive experience of arbitration in the domestic, foreign and international arenas. Members of Chambers frequently act in references across a range of areas including insurance and reinsurance, commercial contracts (including oil and gas, electricity, technology and construction disputes), telecommunications (including appeals from foreign regulators), employment (including ACAS Panel), professional negligence and high-profile sports disputes. Chambers’ experience covers both institutional arbitrations, such as those conducted under the auspices of the ICC and the LCIA, as well as ad hoc references.
Members also undertake court litigation in relation to arbitrations in a wide range of situations, from court intervention in the appointment of arbitrators to appeals from, and enforcement of, arbitral awards. Senior Members of Chambers have experience chairing and acting as members of arbitration panels and are available to sit in most types of arbitration.
We recognise that the interests of our clients are often better served by pursuing alternatives to litigation. Members of Chambers are active participants in the mediation process, whether as advisors, representatives or mediators. Members of Chambers have experience of all other types of ADR including binding and non-binding neutral evaluation.
