Dispute Resolution

We have experience in a wide range of investment and commercial disputes, including the ones related to specific niches such as product liability or insolvency claw back litigation. BDK takes particular pride in its international commercial and investment arbitration capability.  We have represented a number of foreign investors in arbitration disputes with host states or other local entities arising out of privatisation, concessions, construction contracts or other specific commercial arrangements. Besides representing clients in legal proceedings, we advise clients on the drafting of arbitration clauses and transactional structures aimed at improving their access to a desirable forum in case of dispute. We also help clients avoid dispute or mitigate its consequences by negotiating settlement arrangements.

Within our dispute resolution practice, we have set up a multidisciplinary team to deal with internal corporate investigations and white collar crime. The team comprises lawyers with expertise in criminal law and procedure, tax law, disputes, employment, data protection and privacy, and corporate law.
