International commercial arbitration lawyer

The most successful variant of the situation with international commercial arbitration is not to bring the case to court but to protect yourself at the stage of contract conclusion.

That is why a lawyer's work ideally begins with drafting a foreign trade contract for you, which will include an arbitration clause. Of course, this is where current experience comes in handy. After all, not only do you need to draft an arbitration agreement, but you also need to select a specific arbitration institution. For this purpose, it is necessary to understand the prospects of a particular case in this and other arbitrations. The choice of jurisdiction should be convenient for both parties.

In Ukraine alone there are dozens, if not hundreds of arbitration courts. And there are the main arbitration institutions to which the majority of people turn. The task of a lawyer is to calculate your relationship with the counterparty for several steps ahead and maximize your security at all stages of these relations.

The next stage of the lawyer's work will be to support the defense of your interests in international commercial arbitration. Let's assume that a certain contractual conflict has occurred - what to do?

The first thing that the lawyer will do - analyze the contract, the provisions of which were violated. Of course, a properly drafted arbitration clause makes the process of resolving the conflict much easier. Are there any conditions for invalidating the agreement? Does it benefit you, etc.

After the lawyer has thoroughly studied the cause of the conflict, the contract and the situation itself, the most interesting process will begin - collecting evidence and forming a strategy. Next will be documenting your position in the form of a lawsuit and will begin consideration of the case in arbitration.

Each such case is a special puzzle, which is quite possible to put together into a picture of success. It all depends on exactly how you approach the puzzle, and how effectively you will do it.

Important to know

What after the decision is made?

There are essentially two options. If you do not agree with the arbitration decision, you can challenge it. Of course, if there are grounds for it.

If you are satisfied with the arbitration decision, then the enforcement procedure will begin. We will provide you with legal support and advice at this stage as well.

As for the way of work with our clients, we start with consultation and familiarization as a standard. We can get involved in the case at any stage, but of course, it is much more effective when you are accompanied by one professional team from start to finish. Remember, mistakes are much easier to avoid than to correct.
