In a fast-moving and increasingly international business world there are, inevitably, times when agreements and contracts break down and legal action must be taken to protect assets or compensate loss. Dispute resolution is exactly that – the process by which a resolution is achieved. This can be done by Litigation, – i.e. in Court – or by an alternative dispute resolution mechanism. Arbitration is such a mechanism, and is a central pillar of our practice. Prof. Dr. em. Jacques H. Herbots is an accredited international arbitrator and he leads the Herbots arbitration team.
We have represented clients in commercial arbitrations in both international and domestic disputes, under various institutional rules, including ICC, LCIA, ECA and UNCITRAL. As such, we are intimately familiar with the nuances of the various arbitration rules and are perfectly positioned to advise our clients on whether arbitration is the appropriate forum to reach the best resolution for their particular dispute.
We help clients to identify and achieve the best possible outcomes. Our focus is always to help our clients understand the options and to help them to decide on the option that most supports their business interests cost-effectively. Our partner-led, practical approach ensures that clients receive a swift, high-quality response that focuses on achieving the best commercial resolution.
