International Arbitration

Quadrant Chambers is a leading set in international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration. In 2017 we were named International Arbitration Set of the Year at the Legal 500 Awards. 

Members of chambers have acted in arbitrations around the world, including an increasing number in the Far East.

We can provide expert advice on arbitrations covering:

  • Manufacturing
  • Information technology
  • Energy and natural resources
  • Aviation and travel
  • Banking
  • Construction
  • Commodities
  • Hospitality
  • Shipping
  • Shipbuilding
  • Telecommunications

We also have significant expertise in investment treaty arbitration.  Our barristers have acted for both states and investors in this nuanced area, and have been involved in treaty arbitrations across the hospitality, construction, aviation, manufacturing, textiles, gambling, shipping, energy and natural resources sectors, and more. 

We are experienced in not simply preparing memorials, but also in managing an entire dispute as it faces the other side, the tribunal and, if necessary, the ultimate client.
Members are also regularly engaged to advise on and act in proceedings relating to the recognition, enforcement and execution of arbitral awards.
