As arbitration has grown more pervasive, collateral litigation about arbitration has proliferated as well. Our work in this area includes actions to compel or resist arbitration, to vacate or correct arbitral awards, or to recognize or enforce arbitral awards, including actions to seize assets. It also includes judicial proceedings in which parties seek interim protections or injunctive relief during the pendency of an arbitration, or seek to challenge the conduct of an arbitral proceeding, on jurisdictional or procedural grounds.
Our lawyers are preeminent in this area, having handled many of the recent, leading cases relating to efforts to enforce or resist arbitration agreements and awards in the United States. In both the U.S. and abroad, we have handled a broad range of litigation relating to arbitration ─ involving issues under the New York Convention, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act, the UK Arbitration Act 1996, the U.S. Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, and other laws.
