Some Of The Best International Arbitration Legal Representation, At Cost-Effective Rates 

350350

Based in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and North America, the leading international arbitration lawyers of the IAA legal network provide legal representation for international commercial arbitrations, investment treaty arbitrations and public international law disputes globally in a responsive, flexible and highly cost-effective manner.

Our international arbitration lawyers are chosen on the basis of their excellence, experience and track record with respect to international arbitration, and all members have six or more years of experience specializing in international arbitration. Prior to forming independent boutique arbitration practices they were lawyers at the best international corporate firms in the field of international arbitration (Shearman & Sterling, Hogan Lovells, Weil Gotshal, Clifford Chance) or are professors of international law. They studied at the best law schools (Oxford, Columbia, Harvard, the Sorbonne, Cambridge), have won a number of prizes, and frequently serve as arbitrators at leading institutions, while holding important roles at institutions such as the United Nations International Law Commission.

We have not lost a case since the IAA Network was founded, and we have obtained excellent outcomes for clients in hundreds of international arbitrations (ICC, LCIA, ICSID, ICDR, DIAC, PCA, SIAC, HKIAC, PCA, UNCITRAL, etc.). We serve as counsel for clients in international disputes of all sizes, and clients range from individuals and small businesses to multinational corporations and States.

Since we are young, dynamic, and we have no minimum billable targets we must meet, our legal fees tend to be a fraction of the amount of those of opposing counsel. In a recent ICC commercial arbitration, opposing counsel’s legal fees were over USD 2 million after a two-year procedure, whereas our total legal fees were EUR 257,000. In a recent investor-State arbitration, which took place over the course of four years, opposing counsel’s legal fees were over USD 6 million, whereas our legal fees were less than 1/7th of this amount. We have not lost a case yet, and we can typically offer:

  • For international arbitrations where the amount in dispute is less than EUR 10 million, maximum legal fees of EUR 150,000/GBP 105,000/USD 165,000, plus a 7% success fee.
  • For international arbitrations where the amount in dispute is greater than EUR 10 million, maximum legal fees of EUR 300,000/GBP 210,000/USD 330,000, plus a 5% success fee. 
  • We are flexible, and we can always find another solution that is narrowly-tailored to the specific needs of a client.

Christophe Dugué, a partner for a decade at the law firm Shearman & Sterling, has been called agentleman and a fierce advocate providing service to clients that is at the highest level.” William Kirtley, a Franco-American Harvard-trained arbitration specialist who was selected as the“Best of the Best” in 2014, is called by clients a “great lawyer” lawyer who is “smart,” “never gives up,” is “reliable, dynamic, loyal and committed,” and who “will seek 100% to guard the interests of his client.” Professor Dire Tladi is considered to be “one of the leading specialists on public international law of his generation.” Hussein Haeri is a “rising star” in the field of investment treaty arbitration (GAR 100), Professor Sakmar is one of the pre-eminent arbitration lawyers in Turkey, and Lucas Bastin is a “superb all-round lawyer with a deep understanding of public international law” (Legal 500).
