Gardere’s International Dispute Resolution Team represents clients involved in cross-border litigation and arbitration proceedings throughout the world, but particularly those involving Latin America. Our team is comprised of internationally recognized specialists with experience handling disputes across a wide range of industries and advising clients on risk mitigation strategies when conducting business abroad. Our expertise and commitment to this niche practice area allows us to provide expert counsel to large and mid-market clients alike.
Globalization exposes companies engaged in cross-border business to risks and disputes across multiple jurisdictions. These disputes present distinct and complex challenges – from conflicts of law issues, to unique fact-gathering questions, to complications that arise when dealing with parallel proceedings, to the challenges of recognizing and enforcing foreign judgments. Our team is comprised of bilingual and bicultural attorneys who are true international specialists experienced in handling these types of issues.
Although our team has represented clients across five continents, our focus is on matters involving Latin America. Gardere was one of the first Am Law 200 firms to establish a presence in Mexico, opening an office there in 1992. Our U.S.- and Mexican-based attorneys have represented clients in international litigation and international arbitration matters involving Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama and Venezuela. Outside of Latin America, we have represented clients in Asia, Europe and Africa.
Our team provides clients with risk management advice that minimizes their exposure to the hazards inherent in conducting business in a global economy. We provide counsel at the “front end” of a business relationship to help minimize our clients’ exposure and avoid pitfalls in case an international dispute arises.
On this front, we help clients draft arbitration agreements, dispute resolution clauses, choice of forum and choice of law clauses, among other things.
Although we have experience handling very large matters (as some of the representative matters illustrate), our market niche is with regard to mid-market commercial disputes. Our competitive rates and flexible fee arrangements allow us to offer our clients expert level services at a practical price. We take a value-driven approach in staffing all of our matters.
Our team has represented diverse clients in international commercial disputes involving a wide array of industries, including energy, technology, automotive, construction, insurance and financial services, to name a few. We represent multinational oil and gas companies, service companies, mid-size companies and individuals.
Our team has handled commercial and investment arbitrations under all of the major international arbitration rules, including ICSID, AAA, ICC, ICDR, the Inter-American Commercial Arbitration Commission, Singapore International Arbitration Centre Rules and the United Nations Commission for International Trade Law.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
