International arbitration

Conventionally, parties to international contracts prefer international commercial arbitration to state courts when it comes to resolve their dispute.

The advantages of international arbitration are confidentiality (as a rule, information about a dispute litigated in a state court is publicly available, while arbitration proceeding and awards are kept confidential), promptness (most cases are tried in a couple of months, that is comparable to litigation in a Russian state commercial court at trial and would be much faster than it takes to obtain a judgement in a state court in most jurisdictions) and the enforceability of the award (enforcement in most developed countries is based on the New York Convention).

Our advocates are experienced in international arbitration. Our services range from stipulating the arbitration clause when you sign a contract to representing you in international arbitration if your counterparty breaks its obligations.
