International Arbitration

Fishman Haygood builds upon its decades of experience representing claimants in domestic commercial arbitration to expand our practice into international arbitration.

While we continue to provide representation in commercial arbitrations, our expansion into cross-border disputes also includes investor-state arbitrations. These international arbitrations proceed before a variety of fora, including:

  • The International Chamber of Commerce
  • The International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes
  • The Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague
  • The London Court of International Arbitration
  • The Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre
  • The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce

In collaboration with Jones Swanson, the firms represent claimant-investors in their disputes against sovereign nations with particular attention to matters involving North African and Eastern European nations. These proceedings combine our extensive arbitration experience with our established talent in cases involving construction projects, large-scale infrastructure and industrial development projects, and complex financial transactions.

Representative Experience

  • Prosecution of bilateral investment treaty claims before the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in London on behalf of a Turkish contractor against a North African nation for defaulting on housing and infrastructure contracts, winning a substantial unanimous award from the ICC panel.
  • Confidential arbitrations before the ICC arising out of multi-hundred-million dollar large-scale infrastructure projects.
  • Proceedings before the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague arising out of a long-term, multi-hundred-million dollar industrial development.
  • Proceedings before the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes arising out of a multi-billion dollar bank fraud and failure.
