Squire Patton Boggs (SPB) is a full-service global law firm with a multidisciplinary team composed of more than 1,500 lawyers in 46 offices across 21 countries. It has one of the preeminent and fastest growing international arbitration practices in the world. The practice is composed of more than 70 practitioners, located in more than 20 countries, specializing in both international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration.
SPB’s international commercial arbitration team handles the largest commercial disputes in the world, routinely involving hundreds of millions of dollars – often billions. In June 2013, The American Lawyer Arbitration Scorecard published its list of the 20 Largest Commercial Arbitration Awards ever captured by the publication (dating back to 2001), and SPB represented the winning party in three of them. No other law firm had more than two.
SPB’s investment treaty team has acted as counsel for the winning party in some of the most important – and widely cited – cases in the history of the field. It currently represents, or within the past year concluded representations for, ten different sovereign nations in investment arbitrations.
SPB’s team has experience before virtually every major international dispute body in the world. We have acted as counsel in cases involving the ICSID, ICC, LCIA, ICDR, SCC, NAI, DIAC, HKIAC, SIAC, CIETAC and UNCITRAL arbitral rules. We also have acted in cases before the PCA, ICJ, ICTY, ITLOS and the US-Iran Claims Tribunal.
