scope of service

International arbitration

International arbitration in recent years, through the possibility of individual process design and worldwide enforceability, has become the preferred method for resolving cross-border disputes. The prerequisite is concluding an agreement between the parties, the arbitration agreement, through which the judicial power of decision is transferred to an arbitral tribunal. As trial lawyers, we at BLS can draw on our decades long experience with proceedings before the arbitral tribunal and successful closure of arbitral disputes. This is especially in the context of international trade disputes, in advising and representing companies of all sizes and individuals during numerous international trade negotiations and at all stages of arbitration proceedings. It is our goal to avoid long and cost-intensive legal proceedings and instead to find an economically advantageous solution for you in close liaison with you. Our clients can be assured that the legal dispute will be conducted as efficiently as possible.
