International Arbitration Alternative Dispute Resolution, Business Litigation, International

Gunster seeks to provide insightful planning and focused execution when representing clients in international arbitration. Our attorneys have the ability to assess critical facts and issues. The foundation for our experience is manifested in nearly a century of serving practically every sector of Florida business, in dealing with practically every major arbitral system (ICC, ICDR, JAMS, UNCITRAL, etc.), and in appearing both as advocates and arbitrators.

Florida is a global hub for international business entering and exiting U.S. markets. As Florida’s law firm for business, Gunster works with virtually every type of business in the state on resolving disputes. Our attorneys have handled international arbitrations involving banking and financial services, manufacturing, real estate and other investments, construction and infrastructure, energy, insurance, trade, intellectual property, transportation, communications and technology, among others. Gunster attorneys work hard to not only understand the key business issues at play but also identify client goals and plan accordingly.

International arbitration allows a business to impose some controls on the resolution of disputes. Parties can provide that their disputes will be resolved by experienced neutrals in confidence, as well as in accordance with agreed-upon procedures that establish the venue, the language and the controlling law for the process. Unlike judicial awards, international treaties require signatory states to enforce agreements to arbitrate and the resulting arbitral awards.

Sophisticated parties also use agreements to ensure arbitration ensues. Arbitration can often mitigate the costs and risks of dispute resolution by limiting discovery, the amount and type of recoverable damages, as well as the right to bring class action claims. Gunster routinely drafts and enforces arbitration clauses designed to impose such controls on the dispute resolution process.
