International Arbitration & Trade

M&R’s International Arbitration & Trade Practice Group works on behalf of international clients—sovereigns, multinational and foreign business entities, and individuals—involved in complex international dispute arbitrations and litigation, as well as a broad range of trade matters.

International Arbitration

Our international arbitration team has extensive experience handling the most challenging—and in some instances, newsworthy—matters on the global stage. These range from international commercial arbitrations to those involving investment treaties in a wide range of industries, including construction, textile, energy, and manufacturing. We are also often called on to enforce and challenge arbitral awards and foreign judgments in the U.S. and abroad.

M&R’s international arbitrators have successfully represented clients before major international arbitral bodies, including the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and the International Court of Arbitration (ICC).

International Trade

M&R’s trade attorneys are sought after by foreign companies across industries—construction, infrastructure, energy, and textiles, to name a few—looking to enter the U.S. market and expand their global reach. Toward that end, our international trade professionals capably handle multilateral and bilateral trade negotiations and dispute settlements, trade defense, import and export regulations, foreign investment restrictions, sanction violations, and unfair trade practices. The strategic advice and counsel we provide to our clients is founded upon our in-depth understanding of EU and WTO trade rules and all relevant U.S. legislation.

Of note, our lawyers offer frequent commentary about current international arbitration topics and U.S. and international law, more broadly. And as a testament to our particular fluency in matters arising out of Turkey, M&R attorneys have served as co-chairs of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-Turkey Business Council Ad Hoc Legal Working Group and are active participants in the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TUSIAD).
