Global disputes are becoming more frequent, more complex and more costly as corporations and financial institutions face new and heightened operating risks — including rapid digital transformation, rising expectations and accountability related to sustainability and other ESG matters, supply chain challenges, restructuring and insolvency threats, and growing enforcement efforts and coordination between regulatory authorities across jurisdictions.
Against that backdrop, protecting your business in a global market takes lawyers who can dominate pivotal cases while maintaining broad perspective. Our dispute resolution team comprises battle-tested litigators with deep roots in their home jurisdictions — drawing on the wisdom gained from local training, contacts and cultural understanding to drive your litigation strategy. As part of an integrated global team, we ensure that business objectives aren’t sacrificed to one-off wins, and that your reputation for fair dealing remains intact.
