Our team of specialist investment arbitration lawyers advise both investors and sovereign states as counsel and advocates. The businesses we work with make investments around the world. They often call on us to ensure these are adequately protected from commercial and political risk in the context and framework of international investment law.

The predominant focus of our investment treaty practice is representing our clients on investment arbitrations, particularly under ICSID and UNCITRAL arbitration rules. As investment treaty arbitration lawyers, we deliver a standout service, advising governments on drafting investment treaties.
 
Our established investment treaty arbitration practice is grounded in the extensive expertise and strong track record of our dedicated team. We have advised on some of the highest-profile and most complex investment treaty arbitration matters and are highly regarded in the field. Our practice spans investment disputes around the globe.

The framework that allows international investors to have recourse to binding arbitration in a neutral forum for disputes with host states remains a central feature of the investment treaty architecture. Cases our investment arbitration lawyers have worked on include:

Successfully representing a Chinese investor in a PCA-administered investment treaty claim valued at over $1 billion against an African state under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.
Representing the Government of Ukraine in a PCA-administered arbitration regarding the gaming sector.

Representing a European company in the metals sector in an ICSID investment treaty arbitration against a North African state.

Our clients appreciate our investment treaty arbitration solicitors' "deep technical knowledge of investment treaty arbitration" and "clarity of strategic direction". They laud the team as working "with high dedication to achieve a positive result" and attribute our success to our "strong submissions, careful legal and factual analysis, persuasive arguments and excellent advocacy".
