Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Litigation & Dispute Resolution

A global economy, divergent legal systems, and increased cooperation among regulators present companies with a variety of legal challenges. We are uniquely positioned to advise on these issues and represent multinational clients in cross-border litigation, international arbitration, and investigations. Our global network provides an exceptional platform for handling large-scale cross-border disputes, and in recent years we have helped clients succeed in some of the most complex international litigation and investigations. We provide a seamless, integrated service across our network of cross-border disputes and investigations offices, with expertise in each jurisdiction but also an understanding of the interplay of different legal systems and regulations. We strive to resolve disputes as efficiently as possible and focus on providing solutions that are practical and economical. Our peers know that we are always prepared to lead the way, and recognize our successes in important litigation and arbitration on behalf of our clients. Our credibility is also recognized by regulators and prosecutors, which contributes to effective resolution of investigations and other negotiations.
