Your business is global. When a problem materializes that gives you pause, Hogan Lovells can help. Our multilingual international arbitration team works across continents to resolve large, complex, high-value international disputes through commercial or investment treaty arbitration.

Global, local, and industry-specific arbitral institutions — these are our playing fields. We speak the language of all the major worldwide arbitral institutions and arbitrators from diverse cultures and backgrounds. We work across continents, coordinating our internal resources to respond to the most challenging factual and procedural situations you face. We frequently advise on bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. And we have successfully partnered with clients like you in the energy, finance, life sciences, infrastructure, oil and gas, and telecommunications sectors to help guide you through the myriad of arbitral procedures and local laws.

Hogan Lovells is a leader in the field. Our lawyers have held impressive positions on arbitration boards worldwide, such as the ICC Task Force on the Revision of Rules of Arbitration; the ICDR panel (chairmanship), which drafted the International Expedited Procedures; and the UNCITRAL Working Group of Commercial Arbitration and Conciliation.

Global Arbitration Review has ranked us for multiple years among the top five in their GAR 30. "Hogan Lovells produced some pleadings which blew the other side's case away," according to GAR. "They are on top of the details at all times with an experience that is extremely reassuring."

A problem in one part of the world can become quicksand for your entire business. Let Hogan Lovells be your guide.
