Key experience


The nature of arbitration means that much of our work is confidential. However discloseable examples of our recent work include advising: 

Standard Life Aberdeen

Standard Life Aberdeen plc on its widely-reported arbitration with Lloyds Banking Group relating to the termination of a long-term investment management contract worth more than £100 billion.

Major Kazakh bank

A major Kazakh bank on arbitral proceedings brought against its former controlling shareholders in respect of a complex fraud; we secured an award of $600 million in our client’s favour.

The experience, technical skill and commercial awareness of our lawyers allows us to provide our clients with a service of the highest calibre when it matters most.
