Arbitration & Mediation

Mediation and conciliation are our preferred methods for alternative dispute resolution, but when these approaches are not feasible, we successfully represent our clients before arbitration tribunals. We excel in resolving complex commercial and multi-jurisdictional disputes. Our portfolio relates to both local and international issues, as well as to a wide variety of legal areas.

Our team represents corporate and governmental clients in local and international arbitration proceedings. We have gained extensive experience under the rules of ICC, UNCITRAL, ICSID, SCC, LCIA, and the chambers of commerce of Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The key to our success has been our unique team approach, offering our clients a combination of high-level arbitration skills and expertise in the relevant area of the law. Our membership in Lex Mundi and the World Services Group, and our own pan-Baltic cooperation enables us to effectively handle arbitration disputes involving many jurisdictions.

Our work includes assistance and representation at the contract drafting stage right through to the actual resolution of disputes, including advice on formulating arbitration clauses and the choice of arbitral institutions, seat and governing law, the provision of legal opinions about procedures and the subject matter of the dispute anticipated or under review, the representation of clients in arbitration court proceedings, and disputing or obtaining of recognition and enforcement of international arbitration awards. Our team members also act as arbitrators.
