Arbitration

The Arbitration group led by Kathleen Paisley consists of four partners and related associates who act both as counsel and arbitrator.

Arbitration Services

Our lawyers have decades of experience acting as counsel in major international arbitration cases under the AAA/ICDR, CEPANI, ICC, LCIA, ICSID, UNCITRAL and WIPO Rules, as well as in ad hoc proceedings. We are currently handling cases under each of these sets of rules involving a wide range of industries and investor-State disputes. We also work closely with English colleagues on LMAA (London Maritime Arbitrators Association) arbitration cases in London and have acted as witnesses on Belgian law before the High Court in London on various occasions.

Our partners are considered among the preeminent Belgian arbitrators in their fields, including Roel Nieuwdorp for Corporate, Kristiaan Bernauw for Insurance and Transport, and Carl Bevernage for Employment, including but not limited to numerous cases being heard under the CEPANI rules. This includes numerous insurance and transportation-related cases, involving, among others things, industrial fires, cessation of business activities, CMR liability, marine and hull and machinery breakdown insurance.
