Offshore Oil and Gas Dispute Resolution
Our Offshore Oil and Gas Dispute Resolution team has many years of experience assisting clients with commercial disputes in the offshore construction sector, particularly related to drilling rigs and operating contracts for all types of offshore units.
Our focus and dedication in this sector coupled with our industry knowledge enables us to come to a swift understanding of the core issues in any dispute. We find the right commercial solutions for our clients, and where litigation is unavoidable, we oversee the conduct of disputes and set up legal and technical teams to support our clients through the process.
We are familiar with the conduct of all forms of dispute resolution, including High Court litigation and international commercial arbitration and mediation, as well as actions to enforce arbitral awards. Where necessary, we advise on obtaining appropriate security.
We regularly conduct international commercial arbitrations under all major international arbitration rules and in all the leading arbitration centers around the world. Our lawyers have conducted arbitrations in London, Paris, Geneva, Singapore and Hong Kong amongst others under the LMAA, UNCITRAL, ICC, LCIA, and SCMA Rules.
We have strong relationships with international arbitrators and mediators worldwide, allowing us to effectively manage cross-jurisdictional elements of the disputes we handle.
