International Arbitration

The Brattle Group advises clients and provides expert testimony in the context of international arbitrations.

Our experts have testified in all of the major international arbitration forums in disputes covering a wide range of industries. We have been engaged in dozens of investor-state arbitrations, working on behalf of both investors and states, involving assets located in Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.

In addition, Brattle has worked on over 100 international commercial arbitrations. Our work has included economic analyses of liability and damages in matters involving expropriation, breach of contract, failed business transactions, auctions, and trade and treaty disputes. Total claims in international arbitrations in which Brattle has been retained exceed $150 billion. Outside of disputes, we regularly provide commercial and regulatory advice to clients on energy and infrastructure projects around the globe.
