Arbitration

We specialise in arbitrating complex, high-value commercial disputes, often requiring ancillary English court proceedings for applications in support of the arbitration. We frequently work alongside lawyers from other jurisdictions whose clients are party to London-based arbitrations. We have a team dedicated to financial services disputes, and have a particular specialism in arbitrating such claims.
