The firm’s international arbitration practice covers four main jurisdictions (The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland), while at the same time deploys arbitration capabilities from Loyens’ other offices in Hong-Kong, London, New York, Paris, Singapore and Tokyo. Throughout our four home markets, the team is led by Hakim Boularbah, Tom Claassens, Véronique Hoffeld, Robin Moser and Olivier van der Haegen, Peter Callens.
The Loyens & Loeff international arbitration practice is a multidisciplinary team offering tailor-made advice and guidance through the entire international arbitration process. The team routinely represents global clients in international arbitral proceedings covering a vast number of jurisdictions, legal systems (civil and common law) and industry sectors.
One of the features which sets the team apart from many competitors is that its experts have experience acting as counsel in (commercial or investment-treaty) international arbitration proceedings, either ad hoc or under the auspices of all major arbitral institutions (ICC, ICSID, LCIA, SIAC, NAI, Swiss Arbitration Centre, WIPO, Cepani, etc.), and appear in many arbitration-related court proceedings as well.
Lately, the International Arbitration team acted in some of the most high-profile enforcement cases brought before the national courts of our four home markets against or for sovereign states or entities.
To be ranked among the global leaders in the field of international arbitration by the Global Arbitration Review - the leading resource on international arbitration news and community intelligence - is a fantastic result. We are proud of the strong position our international arbitration practice has established throughout the years.
Many thanks to our clients and peers for their ongoing trust, support and glowing feedback, as well as to all the members on the team for their constant commitment and the great work!
