International Litigation and International Arbitration
Contracts and intellectual property registrations are useless without the will and ability to enforce them. And international transactions create unique issues and challenges regarding contract and intellectual property enforcement and dispute resolution where foreign vendors, partners or customers are involved.
As part of our litigation practice, we provide international litigation and arbitration services.
We represent plaintiffs and defendants in international litigation and arbitration throughout the world and across a wide array of industries.
International litigation and arbitration litigation can be complex. Therefore, it's important to seek counsel with technical experience, trial skills, and industry knowledge to handle international litigation and arbitration matters.
International Litigation and Arbitration Services
International litigation is, at its core, similar to domestic litigation. However, the involvement of foreign plaintiffs and dependents creates increased complexity and hurdles such as getting jurisdiction, conducting pre-trial discovery, and enforcing judgements.
