Public International Law is increasingly becoming a significant feature in international commerce. Issues that traditionally arose in the context of State-to-State relations, are now raised in the context of international commercial and investment disputes. They may concern, for example, natural resource development, infrastructure programs or project financing.

Our practice includes both advisory and advocacy work on all aspects of Public International Law. We advise States, international organizations and multinational companies on issues such as:

  • State responsibility
  • Treaty law
  • International investments
  • Oil and gas (and other natural resources)
  • State contracts
  • Infrastructure disputes
  • International boundary disputes
  • Law of the sea
  • International environmental law
  • Sovereign privileges and immunities
  • Human rights
  • International organizations
  • Defense industry contracts
  • Sovereign debt restructuring
  • International trade disputes
  • Sanctions and trade embargoes
