Reed Smith’s international arbitration practice spans the globe. With offices in the world’s leading arbitral centres, including London, Paris, New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, Miami, and Houston, we are ideally positioned to represent clients in international business disputes.
We recently launched an expansion of our global arbitration practice, adding leading international arbitration lawyers in Paris, Singapore, Frankfurt, New York, and the United Arab Emirates, as well as Miami, where we added a market-leading team for Latin American disputes. With the addition of such recognised talent to our already-strong team, we now have one of the largest and most diverse international arbitration practices in the world, able to represent clients in every significant arbitral centre and seat around the globe. As a leading disputes firm, we also represent clients in arbitration-related proceedings in first instance and appellate courts, including stay and enforcement proceedings.
Our geographic reach is coupled with deep industry knowledge. Many of our arbitration lawyers are embedded within industry groups, giving them practical experience of our clients’ business in a wide range of sectors, including energy and natural resources, transportation, international trade, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, entertainment and media, financial services, telecoms, insurance, manufacturing, and construction.
Our team has significant experience in investor-state disputes involving bilateral and multilateral treaties, under the auspices of ICSID and under the UNCITRAL rules, and in claims under the Energy Charter Treaty, advising and representing international investors, states, and state-owned entities in a wide range of disputes.
