Dechert is a global law firm with 26 offices around the world. We advise on matters of the greatest complexity, bringing energy and creativity to deliver commercial and practical advice.
Our multicultural, multilingual and multijurisdictional arbitration group is recognized as a global leader in the field. We represent sovereign States and State-owned enterprises, investors and businesses of every size, and high-net-worth individuals, in a variety of treaty and contract arbitrations. As well as being active in the major industry sectors –energy, mining, construction, life sciences and telecoms – we also pioneer the use of international arbitration in new areas such as internet governance and disputes involving corruption.
Dechert’s arbitration team is integrated on a global basis, with lawyers located in Beijing, Brussels, Dubai, London, Paris, Singapore, New York and Washington DC. From these resources we create tailored teams with the appropriate levels of experience for each assignment, ensuring high levels of responsiveness and value for our clients. Members of our group come from a diverse range of national backgrounds, and many are bilingual or have experience of arbitration in more than one country.
Our clients are facing increasingly challenging times, due to geopolitical uncertainty, the increasing scope of compliance requirements, and a proliferation of commercial and regulatory risk. We partner with businesses to navigate these complex situations, supporting clients in finding pragmatic solutions that achieve commercial goals.
