International Commercial Arbitration

Omnia continues successfully to represent private individuals, corporates and States in international commercial arbitrations conducted in accordance with the major international arbitration rules, including ICC, UNCITRAL, and LCIA.  We are distinctively familiar with each of the arbitral rules and can adapt to the context of the disputes and various locations.  We also appear before national courts to enforce or resist enforcement of international arbitration agreements and arbitral awards.
