DLA Piper

DLA Piper is a global law firm with lawyers located in more than 40 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, positioning us to help clients with their legal needs around the world. Our leading international arbitration practice has lawyers located worldwide. Many of our lawyers are acknowledged leaders in the field of international arbitration and serve on the institutions that administer international arbitration across the world, such as the ICC, the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the Singapore International Arbitration Association and the LCIA. Our global team has vast experience in conducting international arbitration including acting as counsel or sitting as arbitrator under all the major institutional and procedural rules, including those of the AAA, the CIETAC, the DIAC, the HKIAC, the ICC, the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, the LCIA, the Milan Chamber of Commerce, the SCC, the SIAC and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. The global reach of our team leaves us particularly well placed to put together teams that speak the ‘right language’ – not just literally, but also in the sense of understanding first-hand the key business, political and cultural issues that may be in play. We deliberately do not adopt a ‘fly-in, fly-out’ model, but pride ourselves on our ability to put together teams with both international arbitration experience and an understanding of applicable local laws and cultures. We represent parties in international arbitrations in a broad range of industry sectors, including aviation, banking, construction, energy, insurance and reinsurance, international finance, international trade and investments, intellectual property, maritime, media and communications, technology and telecommunications. We have extensive experience in handling arbitration disputes involving sovereign states, including claims brought under bilateral investment treaties and multilateral investment treaties, such as the Energy Charter Treaty, involving the application of public, international and private law.
