International Litigation and Arbitration

Kirton McConkie helps clients solve international commercial disputes. Our international attorneys structure investments and draft dispute resolution clauses to control potential disputes and handle pre-dispute negotiations to avoid unnecessary litigation. We also appear before courts and arbitral tribunals to protect client interests and to enforce or resist judgments and awards. 

Examples include:

  • Dispute Resolution Clauses:  We draft dispute resolution clauses to serve our clients’ needs, whether to encourage negotiation or to ensure efficient litigation. We have drafted clauses to ensure access to the Hong Kong courts, to protect assets through arbitration in the Philippines and to require litigation with foreign business partners in the United States.
  • Litigation and Arbitration:  We have represented our clients in international litigation in the United States, assisted our clients in foreign litigation and served as counsel in international arbitrations. Our representations include serving as counsel to a client in a commercial arbitration in Ecuador and in Venezuela.
