Our global team of specialist dispute resolution lawyers is renowned for its deep understanding of the complexities of the energy and natural resources (ENR) industry.
We have developed a substantial and successful global ENR disputes practice that is renowned for its strategic approach and resolute commercial focus, acting for a broad variety of clients across the supply chain. We seek to resolve disputes by the most effective means, whether through negotiation, mediation, arbitration or litigation, balancing a proportionate response and the achievement of an optimal result. Supported by our ability to deploy well-structured and sizeable teams, when and where required, we guide our clients carefully through the disputes process, whatever their chosen route.
We have extensive experience across all the world’s main arbitral centres and rules including LCIA, ICC, SIAC, CIETAC, HKIAC, DIAC, ADCCAC, ACICA, Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, UNCITRAL rules, ICSID and Swiss rules, to name but a few. Given the strength and breadth of our practice, we are able to mobilise significant teams to manage major disputes and arbitrations and regularly work across our international network to deliver a global service. This includes being appointed to act on a number of ICSID arbitrations and acting for and against governments in investment disputes in many of the rapidly expanding, but sometimes unpredictable, markets of the world.
