Our lawyers have represented State clients in disputes before a variety of international courts and tribunals, including the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), the European Court of Human Rights (EctHR), the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Body, and in the first ever maritime boundary arbitration under Annex VII of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). We have also represented State clients in a range of public international law cases before domestic courts. Our State clients have enjoyed a positive outcome (win or positive settlement) in all concluded State-to-State disputes in which we have acted.
A number of our State representations have involved disputes over territorial sovereignty, the delimitation of land and maritime boundaries, environmental damage and human rights. We are uniquely equipped to assist with the management, coordination and advocacy of such complex, multifaceted and sensitive cases.
