We have a wealth of experience as counsel in complex and high value arbitration proceedings (including ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, LMAA, ICSID, SIAC and ad hoc arbitrations). In addition to having acted for or against more than 60 States in both arbitration and litigation proceedings, we have provided specialist advice to numerous governments establishing arbitration centres.
We regularly appear before national courts in a broad range of commercial, constitutional, regulatory and international law matters. We have also frequently appeared before the International Court of Justice and international tribunals.
Our practitioners have taught at the world’s leading universities, are regularly invited to speak at international conferences, and have authored many articles and key textbooks on public international law, commercial litigation and international arbitration matters.
Our practitioners are qualified to practice, and have rights of audience, in many jurisdictions, including England and Wales, and have also exceptionally been afforded ad hoc rights of audience to appear on sensitive and high profile cases. For decades we have worked with State officials, in-house counsel and law firms all over the world on complex international matters. We also have excellent relationships with local firms in many jurisdictions.
McNair International's practitioners work from offices around the world, including London and Qatar, providing coverage to our clients wherever located.
