Hunton & Williams LLP's international arbitration and transnational litigation practice represents clients before major arbitral institutions around the globe. We regularly handle investor-state arbitrations before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), and commercial arbitrations before the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC); the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA); the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC); the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague; and the American Arbitration Association and its international division, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR).
We assist clients at all stages of the arbitration process: drafting arbitration clauses, consulting regarding risk avoidance, vigorously arbitrating disputes that arise, and enforcing arbitral awards. We advise clients respecting appointment of qualified arbitrators and assist them in selecting expert witnesses. We counsel our clients respecting strategy and guide them concerning settlement options, providing advice to achieve the best possible options for dispute resolution.
We also assist clients in limiting the uncertainty of transnational litigation by coordinating control of the process through a combination of our experience, multidisciplinary approach and international contacts. Our lawyers help clients assess and manage their transnational disputes pre-litigation by advising them on strategy and tactics. Once claims are filed, we prosecute, manage and supervise multijurisdictional litigation to help our clients address multifaceted assaults which result from litigating in multiple forums.
