Orrick Team Obtains Victory for Republic of Guinea in Port Contract Dispute
Orrick’s international arbitration practice is led by eight partners located in five cities in Europe, North America and Asia.
Our focus is on representing our clients in complex high-value cross-border disputes, involving both private and sovereign parties, with recent cases seated in the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France, Switzerland, Japan and Hong Kong.
We have appeared for clients before all major arbitral institutions and acted under all leading sets of rules, as well as in significant national court proceedings relating to those arbitrations. In addition, members of our group routinely sit as arbitrators, giving us the perspective of the decision-maker to use when we act as counsel. Global Arbitration Review ranks our practice in the top 20 in the world in 2016 and Chambers Global 2016 ranks three of our litigators for International Arbitration.
Recent significant examples of our cross-border representations include the following:
In all of our cases, we remain aware that our clients have business and not legal problems, and that a fair resolution short of an award is often the best outcome. Although our track record for cases tried to an award is exceptional, we settle a majority of our cases, often after a favorable early ruling, and have experience in all of the jurisdictions where we practice in the use of mediation and other ADR techniques meant to promote settlement.
