Arbitration Law

Our team has significant experience in both international and domestic commercial arbitration, and have established relationships with local law firms internationally, each of whom we work with regularly and trust. 

What is involved?

Our team has significant experience in both international and domestic commercial arbitration. The team also uses its expertise to assist clients with non-contentious commercial contract drafting, particularly where questions of enforcement, recovery, risk management, governing law and jurisdiction are key issues for clients – especially when contracting with overseas counter-parties.

Freeths have established relationships with local law firms internationally, each of whom we work with regularly and trust. This allows us to work with the best specialist local law firms in the jurisdictions relevant to your dispute, without being tied to branch offices or restricted networks.

We select the best local law firm, with the right experience and sector expertise, to match your requirements, and are also happy to work as co-counsel with your own overseas advisors.

Call our Dispute Resolution team to see how we can help you.

  • Regularly acting with overseas clients’ local advisors as co-counsel
