Skadden’s European litigation and arbitration practice has its headquarters in our London office and works closely with Skadden’s attorneys around the world. We are known in the market for our ability to win the most complex cases on behalf of our clients, in court proceedings and arbitration. Our lawyers undertake multijurisdictional litigation and international arbitrations, including commercial and investment treaty arbitrations under the auspices of leading arbitral institutions. We conduct cases under the ICSID, ICC, LCIA, HKIAC and UNCITRAL rules, among others. Our practice is to use small, dedicated teams of lawyers for each case to provide a streamlined and cost-efficient service. Unlike many London firms, we do not need to hire external barristers to act as advocates in international arbitration, as we have the relevant experience within our arbitration practice. We also have solicitor-advocates with rights of audience before the High Court of England and Wales. Our London arbitration practice is ranked in the first tier for international arbitration by The Legal 500 and Chambers UK, which describes our international arbitration practice as “phenomenal.”
