Practice Areas

Commercial Litigation and International Arbitration 

We bring a practical and business-sensitive approach to our clients’ disputes. We know that most cases can and should be resolved without the cost and unpredictability of trial. But our clients — and our adversaries — also know that our lawyers have conducted over one hundred trials in courts and arbitral tribunals and we are well positioned to do what is necessary to get the best possible result. This trial experience also gives us and our clients an edge in strategically formulating the best approach at each stage of a dispute.

Our lawyers have decades of experience handling cases involving contract disputes, corporate governance, civil rights, employment, constitutional issues, finance, intellectual property, antitrust, creditors rights, and Sino-foreign joint ventures among other areas. We appear in state and federal courts in New York and around the Country. The firm also has experience handling disputes and arbitrations in major global financial centers, including London, Hong Kong and New York. Our lawyers are uniquely qualified to handle disputes involving Chinese companies and state entities that most other firms cannot take on. We also advise international companies on their operations in the People’s Republic of China, and dealings with Chinese companies.
