HFW is a market leading sector-focused international law firm with more than 600 lawyers working across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
We have a significant global arbitration practice. Our lawyers have been at the forefront of arbitration developments over many years. Our practice is sector focused, and we have a range and depth of arbitration matters that many larger firms would envy, with the total number of arbitrations handled at any one time estimated at 750. We are especially strong in a number of core areas, particularly construction, energy, trade and commodities, shipping, aviation, insurance/reinsurance, banking and financial services – all fields where international arbitration is very important and generates significant work. The arbitrations we handle are often complex and extremely high value too; last year, the quantum of arbitration claims under management was US$11 billion.
We conduct arbitrations under all the most popular arbitration forums and institutional rules, including UNICTRAL, LCIA, ICC, ICSID, ARIAS, CIETAC, ACICA, PCERA, DIFC-LCIA, HKIAC and SIAC. We also conduct hundreds of arbitrations under the specific rules of trade bodies such as GAFTA, FOSFA, LMAA, LME, RSA and LOF. Our partners serve as arbitrators and as expert witnesses in arbitration, and we have advised arbitral bodies and governments on arbitral rules and legislation. More recently, we have further expanded our international arbitration practice into investor-state arbitrations, having represented states and investors alike.
We are consistently listed in the GAR 100 "approved" list as a leading international arbitration practice and frequently act in arbitration-related court proceedings. In fact, The Lawyers' Litigation Tracker 2018 revealed that HFW was the most active litigation firm in terms of arbitration-related litigation (Q1-Q2), commercial litigation (Q1-Q3) and in the English Commercial Court (2016 – 2017, Q3 2018).
