Norton Rose Fulbright’s global arbitration practice operates across Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia and handles some of the most sensitive, high-value and strategically important international arbitrations, working closely with its clients to determine and achieve their commercial objectives in a quick and cost-effective manner. We advise on all aspects of arbitration, from drafting suitable clauses to advising on the type and seat of arbitration, the constitution of the tribunal, arbitral procedure and enforcement of the award. We are skilled advocates in several languages. We also give advice on all forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and expert determination.
We are instructed by clients in sectors such as financial institutions, infrastructure, mining and commodities, energy, technology and innovation, life sciences and health. An increasing number of our projects involve multi-jurisdictional elements and we have experience in a range of complex projects involving a number of national laws, particularly in industries with high level of exposure to risk.
The Paris arbitration team has a particular focus on arbitration issues involving French law or French-speaking parties, for instance from North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
