Our lawyers have been involved in around 50 decided and pending investment arbitration and associated court proceedings around the world, acting for both State and investor parties.
Our lawyers have won some of the largest arbitral awards in the history of investment arbitration for investor clients, and defeated other substantial claims for State clients. In recent years, our lawyers have secured three investment treaty awards above US$200 million in unrelated cases, totalling more than $1 billion in damages. We have also reached a substantial (confidential) settlement in another treaty case for an investor client. We are regularly chosen to advise on some of the most complex and novel investor-State disputes, including those involving multiple parties and/or multiple treaties.
We have advised on cases under all of the world’s major institutional arbitration rules (including the ICSID, UNCITRAL, LCIA, PCA, SCC and ICC rules). We have acted in investor-State disputes involving a wide range of economic sectors and industries, including energy, finance, hospitality, construction, manufacturing, transport and communications.
