The firm has built a considerable expertise in the field of commercial arbitration (both domestic and international). Arbitrations under the most well-known arbitration rules are constantly contacted, including those of International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), American Arbitration Association (AAA), European Court of Arbitration (ECA), Vienna Rules, Zurich Rules, Stockholm Rules and other, but also ad hoc arbitrations esp. under UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules. The firm has acted in a variety of arbitral seats, including London, Paris, Geneva, Zurich, Vienna, Stockholm, Frankfurt-am-Main, Athens, Helsinki, Bucharest etc. In depth expertise and experience cover not only general arbitration rules, but also specialised areas, including maritime (LMAA, SMA, PAMA), intellectual property (WIPO), construction (FIDIC, including pre-arbitral DABs), investment (ICSID, MIGA, BITs), energy (Energy Charter Treaty).

The firm’s head of arbitration is President of the Greek Section of the European Court of Arbitration, Vice-President of the Greek Arbitration Association and a drafter of the Maritime Arbitration Rules of the Piraeus Association for Maritime Arbitration.

In view of the confidential nature of arbitral references, indicatively we mention three cases of high importance, among many others, that demonstrate our in-depth expertise in this field: being selected by the Republic of Montenegro - among the most well-known multinational/global law firms - to represent them in the largest commercial arbitration (Frankfurt) they faced, in addressing the claim valued at approx. € 500 mio of one among the two biggest worldwide commercial and industrial conglomerates, with a positive result for our client. This constituted the first known case of a foreign Government selecting a law firm based in SE Europe from the international market, to defend and secure their vital interests; participation in the international arbitration, that arose following the privatisation of the Bank of Athens vs the National Bank of Greece; successful representation of our client -a major Greek construction company- vs a Romanian State company, before an ICC International Arbitration (Paris) concerning a c. multimillion euros dispute related to the construction of two motorways.
