Alston & Bird is home to a dynamic, full-service international arbitration and dispute resolution practice that handles the full range of commercial and investor disputes. We recognize that in an increasingly global economy, with cross-border transactions and disputes becoming the norm, clients are more often seeking the benefits that international arbitration provides: an expeditious resolution; avoiding the time and costs that more traditional litigation entails; confidentiality; and further predictability through the avoidance of the national courts of the country of their counterparts.
Alston & Bird is poised to take full advantage of all the benefits that international arbitration can provide. We can structure arbitration agreements; provide advice with respect to cross-border transactions, so as to take advantage of certain types of arbitration; and arbitrate a range of commercial disputes involving construction contracts, joint ventures, shareholder disputes, mergers & acquisitions, investments, supply and distribution contracts, software development agreements and licensing agreements. In addition, we can assist clients before national courts in disputes relating to international arbitration, including actions seeking to enforce arbitration agreements and seeking to enforce arbitral awards.
