International Arbitration

MDM&C attorneys recognize the sophisticated nature and ever-changing climate of doing business internationally.  Our attorneys help clients navigate through the complicated terrain of conducting business in multiple jurisdictions and across national borders.  This representation begins at the contracting stage, with guidance in the drafting of robust dispute resolution clauses that recognize the unique challenges of doing business in foreign jurisdictions and avoid the risk of getting caught in foreign courts and/or facing unfamiliar foreign laws.

When disputes do arise, MDM&C attorneys are forceful and knowledgeable advocates, well versed in arbitration processes and procedures – both domestic and international.  They have appeared before tribunals throughout the world under the auspices of most major arbitral organizations, including the AAA, JAMS, ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, FINRA, ARIAS and ICDR, and have handled matters involving more than $500 million in dispute. 

MDM&C attorneys have particular expertise and experience in the following industries and concentrate their practice on meeting the international arbitration needs of clients in those businesses:

  • Construction
  • Insurance
  • Healthcare
  • Financial Services
  • Pharmaceuticals

We bring to bear our vast industry knowledge and extensive arbitration experience to provide our clients with a competitive advantage in the preparation and presentation of their cases in international arbitration.  Using MDM&C’s cutting edge in-house technological capabilities, including the latest e-discovery systems and procedures, MDM&C brings about more efficient and cost-effective resolution of both modest and high-value disputes.

It is MDM&C’s unique blend of domestic and international arbitration acumen, subject matter and industry expertise, and technological sophistication that allows it to compete (and prevail against) some of the largest firms in the world.  Our clients need not pay mega-firm rates to achieve the representation and results they deserve.
