Arbitration is increasingly used globally as the efficient and cost-effective alternative to court litigation for solving commercial disputes. It is also making inroads into new areas such as trust disputes. When it comes to enforcement of arbitration awards, speed and expertise in the relevant jurisdiction are critical. You need the advice of seasoned experts who can quickly determine the best approach for a successful conclusion. Early input from offshore experts can help shape the proposed arbitral relief into the most efficient form for effective enforcement against the targeted offshore asset base.
Recognising that the highly specialised world of international arbitration needs and deserves specialised and focussed resources in the offshore world, Conyers has formed an Arbitration Enforcement Group which comprises the collective specialist talent and experience of Conyers attorneys across our offices worldwide. Together we have many decades of practice in relation to the enforcement of arbitration awards in Bermuda, the BVI and the Cayman Islands from virtually every arbitral tribunal in the world, including those in the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
We are frequently instructed to act in the leading, highest value and most important arbitration matters offshore. Our clients include major global corporations operating in every relevant market and sector as well as global financial institutions and high net worth individuals. Members of our group include a past president in the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, local chairs of the Institute as well as those with distinguished academic backgrounds in relation to the law and practice of arbitrations.
In addition to the enforcement (and, where appropriate, resisting enforcement) of awards, the group regularly advises and obtains essential interim relief in support of arbitrations, or prospective references to arbitration, as well as any form of available execution. We are experts at obtaining disclosure orders in support of possible arbitration proceedings – often a crucial step in any effective enforcement strategy.
Our depth of experience within the sphere of arbitration allows us to quickly assess the most suitable and successful form of enforcement and to cost effectively obtain the results that our clients require. Moreover, our global footprint allows us to provide timely advice whatever the time zone or degree of urgency.
