International Arbitration

Morgan Lewis’s international arbitration team combines dispute resolution strategy and creative legal analysis with insight into intercultural and arbitration dynamics to effectively counsel clients on international arbitration and cross-border disputes. Our highly regarded arbitration lawyers handle significant disputes in the Americas, Asia, Europe, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, Africa, and the Middle East. The team has experience representing clients under all principal international arbitration rules and is well versed in both civil and common law.

With knowledge across many industries and experience in many venues, our lawyers propose creative, cost-effective solutions and strategies while exploring resolutions that make business sense for our clients. The team is familiar with all aspects of international arbitration; some members also serve as arbitrators. And, because the successful resolution of a dispute often goes beyond the arbitration process, the group also advises clients in ancillary proceedings such as mediation, attachments, injunctions, appeals, and enforcement proceedings worldwide.

We counsel clients on the full range of legal matters, with an emphasis on those involving joint ventures and other commercial and investment disputes.
