International arbitration is a major practice area for Zaiwalla and Co and our founding partner, Sarosh Zaiwalla, is a preeminent arbitrator who has participated in thousands of arbitrations over the past 40 years. From representing governments, to major companies in industries such as shipping and energy, we are typically called upon to deal with complex, multi-jurisdictional matters that require a creative approach. For disputes lawyers and their clients, arbitration’s confidential nature means it is an increasingly popular alternative to litigation. For many international businesses, it is now the preferred method of dispute resolution.
Our team of arbitration lawyers act across a range of sectors including banking and financial services, energy, commodities, shipping, aviation, construction, life sciences, real estate, media and professional services.
Though based in London, our multi-cultural team of lawyers work on matters for parties all over the world, with a focus on frontier and emerging markets, most notably across Africa, Russia and the CIS, the Middle East, India and China. Where necessary we work with lawyers in other jurisdictions in order to obtain measures in support of arbitration proceedings including injunctions.
