Curtis’ caseload has included many of the world’s best-known arbitrations and over US$100 billion in claims. We handle disputes under all the major arbitrations rules, including ICSID, ICC, AAA, LCIA and SCC rules as well as ad hoc arbitrations under the UNCITRAL rules. The team also has an excellent track record in the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards in the UK commercial courts and U.S. federal courts.
Curtis has been recognized as the No. 1 law firm in the world for high-stakes international arbitration by the American Lawyer, a figure that is based on the number of cases handled involving more than US$1 billion in dispute. The firm has for many years been the top firm by number of sovereign representations at ICSID and remains so today. Curtis is also ranked as a top firm overall by Global Arbitration Review.
The range of services provided by the group includes: drafting arbitration clauses; handling pre-arbitration negotiations; and representing clients before arbitral tribunals and in connection with court proceedings relating to provisional remedies as well as recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards.
Curtis is the leading firm in representing sovereign states as respondents in ICSID arbitrations. Described as a "a knight in shining armour for governments facing serious claims under investment treaties" by Global Arbitration Review, we have defended over 40 states. We follow a policy of exclusively representing states in investor-state arbitrations to avoid the issue conflicts that may arise by representing both investors and states simultaneously.
The group is composed of leading international arbitration practitioners spanning all offices of the firm. It is highly integrated, allowing staffing of cases across offices. Many of our practitioners are recognized for their expertise and ranked by legal awards organizations across Latin America, Europe, the United States, the Middle East and Asia. Members of the group have authored widely-recognized articles on international arbitration and are frequently invited to deliver keynote addresses or appear as panelists at international conferences.
