Practice & Industry Groups

Litigation, Arbitration & Dispute Resolution

With a robust litigation and dispute resolution practice always having been a requirement for admission to World Law Group, the membership of our global Litigation, Arbitration & Dispute Resolution Group encompasses senior litigators and arbitrators with experience at the highest levels in their jurisdictions, as well as many who have served as arbitrators or mediators in complex international proceedings.

In addition to coming together at WLG conferences, LADR Group members meet at other regional and international events in their field to exchange information about developments in litigation, mediation and arbitration in their respective jurisdictions, and to share experiences in appearing before courts and other tribunals. LADR members have also collaborated on works including International Civil Procedure, published by Kluwer Law International.

In recent years, LADR members have teamed up to produce cross-border victories, including:

Successfully assisting a member’s client to finally obtain and collect a multi-million US$ award in Norway and Switzerland after a long legal battle with an offshore company via a “reverse piercing” of the corporate veil;

Assisting one member’s Asian manufacturing client win a number out-of-court settlements regarding the violation of the client’s copyrights by Russian companies in a matter involving both counterfeit and parallel-import cases;

Winning the dismissal of a lawsuit brought in the U.S. by a forum-shopping German company against one member firm’s Iraq-based telecommunications client.
