International Arbitration

Inopra advises clients in dispute resolution through various alternative dispute resolution procedures, including arbitration and mediation, without involving in costly and lengthy litigation measures.

Arbitration is a contract-based system which gives priority to the parties’ intention. Parties can choose the applicable law and appoint experienced arbitrators. This option is a great luxury that does not exist in national courts. There are reasonable grounds to choose arbitration as a dispute resolution system. Parties are able to choose their own arbitrator, the members of the tribunal, their own applicable law, and rules governing the arbitration. These elements provide tremendous flexibility to the parties, which they cannot reach in litigation.

Parties should be very careful while deciding between arbitration and litigation. The biggest difference between arbitration and litigation is that arbitration is based on conflicts which derive from contracts and the consent of the parties. Usually, parties do not consider that a dispute may arise in the future while making a contract. At that point, Inopra provides extensive experience to the resolution of complex, high value international business disputes through commercial or investment treaty arbitration.

Our legal experts represent clients before local and international arbitration tribunals and in individually tailored ADR proceedings such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the International Center for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), German Institution of Arbitration (DIS), panels governed by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and many others, to ensure that legal differences are solved as efficiently as possible.
