International and domestic commercial arbitration
Blake Morgan has extensive experience of pursuing and defending international and domestic commercial arbitrations under various procedural and substantive governing laws. Our lawyers have conducted UK based and overseas arbitrations before the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA”), the International Chamber of Commerce (“ICC”) and numerous other institutions, and also represented clients in ad hoc arbitrations applying the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (“UNCITRAL”) rules.
We also help clients to enforce international and domestic arbitration Awards against their opponents.
Main Areas Of Practice
Blake Morgan provides expert advice across the full life cycle of arbitration issues.
Choice of Arbitration
Arbitration is a private dispute resolution mechanism invoked at the choice of the parties. We assist clients to determine whether arbitration will be the most appropriate dispute resolution process for their needs. If so, we guide clients about the form of drafting for clauses in contracts, and then what they can expect in the event of a dispute.
When disputes arise, we pursue and defend domestic and international arbitration proceedings. We handle the full range of commercial arbitrations, including those arising out of supply contracts (including international trade and commodities contracts), contracts for services, franchise, joint venture and concession agreements, and intellectual property, construction and real estate arbitrations.
Enforcement of Arbitral Awards
Once the arbitration has been determined and the Award rendered, the successful party must enforce that Award through the Courts. Blake Morgan assists clients to enforce arbitration Awards (whether from domestic or overseas arbitrations) against unsuccessful parties with assets in England and Wales.
We act for corporates and individuals from all over the world who are involved in an arbitration either seated in the UK or otherwise with an English law element.
