Our lawyers have rich experience in arbitration and dispute resolution proceedings at courts and arbitral tribunals, and significant expertise in commercial litigation across other sectors, competition law and anti-trust issues, white-collar crimes, restructuring and insolvency.
A substantial part of our arbitration and dispute resolution practice arises out of complex commercial transactions. Our emphasis is on aligning litigation strategy with the commercial interests of our clients, while recognising time sensitivities. Our lawyers frequently work with other practices, such as tax, competition, intellectual property, information technology, infrastructure and energy, to provide incisive advice.
Our team has rich and wide-ranging experience in cross-border investment disputes before courts and arbitral tribunals. We work with lawyers in other jurisdictions to provide a comprehensive strategy. A large part of our clientele comprises financial institutions and funds, apart from large multinational corporations. We are market leaders in the power, aviation and oil and gas sectors, and our lawyers represent and advise transmission, distribution and generation companies, and regulatory commissions.

Our White-Collar Crime practice represents clients in high-profile matters, primarily involving corruption and other irregularities, with consequences in the contractual, criminal law and public law spheres.
