Commercial Arbitration

Arnold & Porter has exceptionally broad experience in commercial arbitration, representing corporations, state-owned entities, associations, and individuals in a wide range of disputes arising out of transactions, investments, projects, trade, and other commercial activities in the United States, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. Chambers USA remarked that "this hugely experienced group is held in high regard for its expertise" in commercial arbitrations.

Such arbitrations are handled with team members in our Houston, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Washington, DC offices. Our attorneys have extensive experience arbitrating disputes in a wide range of industries and economic sectors, particularly aerospace, construction, energy and natural resources, entertainment and media, financial services, infrastructure, life sciences, private equity, technology, telecommunications, and with particular focus on post-M&A issues, intellectual property licensing, project finance, joint ventures, distribution and logistics, and government concessions.

Our attorneys have experience representing clients before all of the principal international and regional arbitral institutions (including the ICC, LCIA, AAA/ICDR, and SCC), as well as in ad hoc arbitrations (including under the UNCITRAL rules). Many of our attorneys are on the panels of approved arbitrators and sit on the governing bodies of those arbitral institutions. We are involved in all aspects of commercial arbitration, including drafting arbitration agreements, advising on best practices and strategy in structuring dispute resolution processes, representing clients in disputes, serving as arbitrators, managing complex multi-jurisdictional dispute portfolios, assisting in the enforcement of arbitral awards, and handling executive proceedings in the United States and around the world.
