We can rely on our partners’ extensive experience in domestic and international arbitration and litigation, as well as in many other areas of practice acquired in their previous firms (see Our Team).
We have acted as counsel or arbitrators under a variety of applicable laws and arbitration rules, including those of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution, the Danish Arbitration Institute, the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, the Milan Arbitration Chamber, The Court of International Commercial Arbitration attached to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania (CCIR), UNCITRAL, the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the European Development Fund (EDF) and the Court of Arbitration for Sports (TAS/CAS), and in different seats.
We have a very significant expertise in investor-State arbitrations, having acted in many arbitrations of this kind, including for the successful claimant in the well-known Saipem S.p.A. v. The People’s Republic of Bangladesh (ICSID Case No. ARB/05/07), which for the first time recognized that the interference with arbitral proceedings by state courts can amount to a violation of international law and of a bilateral investment treaty.
In 2016 Luca Radicati di Brozolo has been appointed by the Republic of Italy to the ICSID Panel of Arbitrators.
In addition to international arbitration, the litigation department of the firm, led by Professor Marco Torsello, has handled many types of complex court proceedings, and advised on litigation tactics and many other issues directly or indirectly bearing on pending or envisaged litigation.
Our experience covers a broad range of areas of law (public and private international law, civil law, commercial law, antitrust law, European Union Law, liberalizations and privatizations, distribution, M&A, bank guarantees, intellectual property and sports law) and a large variety of industry sectors (construction, defense, telecommunications, energy, insurance, banking, fashion, sports).
