International Disputes

As the world becomes more globalized, arbitration clauses are becoming increasingly prevalent for international businesses, investors and travelers. Arbitration clauses are used in a wide variety of circumstances, governing everything from multinational transactional business conflicts to disputes involving international investment treaties.

TWO TYPES OF INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION DISPUTES

COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION

With the growth of international commerce, businesses are increasingly using arbitration to resolve their international disputes. Several arbitral institutions specialize in administering arbitrations related to commercial and business disputes.

INVESTMENT ARBITRATION

Bilateral investment treaties (BITs) between two countries have become increasingly common as private investors invest more in foreign countries. Many BITs provide foreign investors the right to pursue arbitration if their rights have been violated.
