International Arbitration

Between January and April 2020, John McKendrick QC, Nicholas Johnson QC and Alex Haines were instructed on behalf of the Respondent in an international commercial dispute worth over £115 million.

The dispute was between two parties in a former Soviet Republic, involving high value commodities.

The arbitration took place under LCIA Rules and John and Alex represented the respondent at the hearing, which took place virtually. One witness was cross-examined from his overseas location and the legal representatives and Tribunal all participated remotely.

The team successfully reduced the respondent’s liability to less than 50% of what was sought in the claimant’s request for arbitration, representing a considerable saving for their client.
