Enforcing contracts that cross international borders

International commercial disputes can be challenging to resolve in today’s business climate – especially as transactions may take place in several jurisdictions and also online.

Successful outcomes for your cross border disputes

International litigation holds a level of risk for all businesses. We seek to minimise that risk by developing a creative solution to your commercial dispute and putting a pragmatic plan of action in place. Our solicitors can help with forum shopping as well as representing your business during international, multi-party negotiations, mediation, arbitration and, as a last resort, court proceedings.

The UK has reciprocal agreements with more than 100 countries, which means that for most cross border disputes, a bilateral agreement will apply. Once a decision or settlement is made in your favour, we can help to enforce it through the relevant Convention or Regulation, with supporting actions such as worldwide asset tracing and freezing orders to protect the money or assets that are owed to you. For clients based overseas, we can also assist with enforcing foreign court judgments and arbitration awards against UK-based defendants.

Where there is no bilateral agreement, such as in Russia or China, we have access to a friends network of local lawyers who can support cross border disputes litigation in every corner of the globe.
