Our unified team works in offices on three continents, and is supported by a network of local counsel across the world. Our lawyers speak multiple languages and
regularly travel between countries to represent clients. We have experience handling disputes in a variety of industries, with a particular focus on energy, construction, and technology/intellectual property, and storied experience in insurance, banking, and pharmaceuticals.
Our lawyers know the institutions, arbitrators, opposing lawyers, and the written and unwritten rules of the international arbitration system. Members of V&E’s IDR team are regularly appointed as arbitrators, which speaks to their standing in the arbitration community, while giving greater insight into what it takes to
be effective when appearing as counsel on behalf of our clients in international arbitration cases. Many of our lawyers are experienced trial lawyers, skilled in written and oral advocacy and persuasive strategy.
