Trained in common law, civil law, and international law, Venable attorneys have extensive experience handling cross-border disputes in a variety of forums, in multiple languages, and under diverse procedural and substantive laws. We work in all three major areas of international dispute resolution: international litigation, international commercial arbitration, and international investment arbitration.
Our lawyers routinely represent companies and individuals before U.S. state and federal courts in international commercial disputes. We are especially experienced in guiding non-U.S. clients through the U.S. litigation process, from filing suit to addressing complex procedural issues such as personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens, from weathering international discovery to trying a case under U.S. or non-U.S. law. We also have expertise in litigating issues that arise out of arbitration proceedings, including petitions to compel and to enjoin arbitration and to enforce and vacate arbitral awards under state law, the Federal Arbitration Act, and the New York Convention.
International Commercial Arbitration
Venable attorneys have substantial experience in international commercial arbitration. We have represented clients in arbitrations under the ICC, ICDR/AAA, UNCITRAL, and other rules. Our attorneys have diverse backgrounds and are able to handle proceedings under the substantive law of multiple jurisdictions and in multiple languages.
International Investment Arbitration
Our lawyers represent private parties and sovereigns in multi-million-dollar investment-treaty arbitrations before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes
