Superior Energy Services, LLC v. Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Ltd., 635 F. App'x 375 (9th Cir. 2016)

Persuaded the Ninth Circuit to unanimously reverse the district court's order denying our client's petition to compel arbitration. The case arose out of a dispute over unpaid invoices for subsea work that our client performed to assist with oil exploration off the Angolan coast. The Ninth Circuit concluded that our client was a third party beneficiary of the relevant contract and thus could invoke that contract's arbitration clause. View the oral argument.
