Ropes & Gray’s international arbitration practice uses its extensive global knowledge and experience to provide clients with practical, cost-effective ways to resolve disputes. We collaborate seamlessly across offices and practice areas to deliver focused and successful legal solutions at all stages of arbitration for clients in a wide range of industries, including banking, finance, technology, manufacturing, insurance, health care and life sciences.
Whether handling matters before international arbitrators or related proceedings in U.S. and local courts, our lawyers draw upon the full resources of the firm to produce results for our clients. We also take a proactive approach by counseling clients on contractual arbitration and dispute resolution clauses to maximize our clients’ chances of success in the event of a dispute.
We have handled arbitrations under a variety of arbitral rules, including the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and its International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), among others.
In addition, we advise clients on both tax disputes between private parties and with governments, including arbitration of issues under tax treaties in the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague and other venues. Our work also encompasses arbitration of commercial disputes involving tax issues, such as post-deal tax indemnification and the effects of tax on arbitration and other ADR awards.
