Aceris Law’s LCIA Arbitration Lawyers Desk is a dedicated team of lawyers at Aceris Law, a specialised international arbitration law firm, which accompanies clients involved in LCIA arbitrations.
Aceris Law’s Harvard, Oxford and Sorbonne trained lawyers are admitted to bars of Western Europe, Eastern Europe and North America and have significant prior experience dealing with commercial, construction and investment treaty arbitrations under the LCIA Rules. We are experts in international arbitration: this is all that we do, which allows us to offer more cost-effective fees than other firms for the highest quality international arbitration legal representation.
We have offices in London and maintain permanent access to offices in Glasgow and Belfast to meet and work with clients, although our headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference.
Our LCIA Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic British barristers, who are involved depending on the specific needs of a given arbitration. This ensures that our clients obtain the best arbitration legal representation while also maintaining cost-effectiveness for LCIA arbitrations. Our LCIA Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to jurisprudence and doctrine concerning nearly all laws, while speaking English, French, Czech, Slovak, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, Arabic, German, Italian, Romanian, Russian and Farsi.
William Kirtley, the principal of Aceris Law, has worked in the field of international arbitration over the past fifteen years at the highest level, establishing an excellent track record for LCIA arbitrations. Dr. Marie-Camille Pitton is an internationally-educated French arbitration special counsel at Aceris Law, registered as an attorney in New York and registered at the Versailles Bar with over a decade of experience in international arbitration. She was formerly Counsel at the ICC in Paris and also studied law at Harvard and Oxford.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations under the LCIA Rules and under English law. For example, Aceris Law’s LCIA Arbitration Lawyers Desk recently represented a construction company in an LCIA arbitration under Saudi Law with its seat in London. We also recently represented a client in a successful multi-party arbitration under English law against a Middle Eastern company, with our client being awarded essentially all damages sought and defeating a large, USD 131 million counterclaim. We have served as counsel in disputes with British companies regarding the development of turbines, represented a Northern Irish company in a dispute concerning a joint venture, represented a client in an arbitration under English law in the oil and gas industry, and have served in arbitrations in the engineering, IT, aviation, hospitality, construction, logistics and chemicals industries, inter alia.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for LCIA arbitrations, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving LCIA are handled efficiently and more cost-effectively than was traditionally possible.
