Dispute Resolution

Our team handles all aspects of litigation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution in relation to public procurement and projects in the oil & gas, shipbuilding, construction and energy industries.

Dispute resolution involves more than appearing before courts and arbitration tribunals to argue cases; our services include assistance with settlement negotiations and various forms of mediation. We give our clients clear advice about litigation risk and likely outcomes in advance of commencing or defending against a claim through any dispute resolution mechanism. We have an international team of lawyers qualified in jurisdictions around the world, including Norway, Sweden, Hungary, Malaysia and the United States, thus we are well-equipped to handle international disputes of all kinds.

Our lawyers understand our clients’ businesses and the issues they face. We combine legal expertise, commercial common sense and innovation to assist our clients in the arbitration or litigation process to achieve the optimal resolution. All of our lawyers come with in-house experience, adding valuable insight to both technical issues and our clients’ needs. Where disputes involve technical issues, we are able to effectively gather the necessary evidence and make thorough preparations with our clients more effectively than a typical law firm. We dig through contracts and technical details to discover missing claims and protect our clients’ rights before they are lost. Success in litigation or arbitration can often depend on which party has best prepared itself prior to the commencement of proceedings. We excel at strengthening our clients’ positions, giving them an advantage when advancing, defending against or negotiating claims.
