GoldenGate is rapidly building a strong domestic and international arbitration practice, led by a team of highly experienced lawyers from both the continental civil law and common law traditions. This diversified team of lawyers from a variety of legal backgrounds enables GoldenGate to deploy devoted teams of lawyers having the skills best suited to serve our Clients’ needs depending on the arbitration forum in question and with an extremely high level of partner involvement. We are not a litigation firm that also does arbitration. Our Team spends a majority of its practice on international arbitration matters and related cases. The depth of our arbitration teamÔs experience is one of the greatest advantages which GoldenGate offers to its Clients. We act as counsel, advice and guide the Client on all stages of international arbitration proceedings: from performing preliminary assessments of the case to enforcing the award in national courts all over the world. We are ready to promptly deal with the ClientsÕ needs and become involved in the proceedings whenever necessary.
International business transactions require a means of speedy and impartial resolution of disputes. National courts are not always suitable, for various reasons. Instead, international arbitration has evolved as the method of choice, often because of the industry sector involved, or because arbitration awards are more widely enforceable internationally than court judgments. We regularly deal with arbitrations under different procedural rules and across a number of jurisdictions. Our international arbitration practice encompasses references under the rules of ICSID, UNCITRAL, ICC, LCIA and ARIAS, and under the industry specific rules of FIDIC, LMAA, GAFTA, FOSFA, LME and RSA.
