International Dispute Resolution

Risk Mitigation and Regulation

We add value by advising our clients on risk mitigation and avoidance strategies from the outset. This includes advising on how to structure a project to maximise any available treaty protections and minimise other risks. We frequently advise on the actual or potential impact of international financial sanctions on our clients’ businesses. We also help to steer our clients through regulatory investigations and white collar crime matters in addition to advising on compliance with bribery, corruption and anti-money laundering requirements. • Oilfield services contractor — claims against a former employer arising from client’s employment in Iraq • Independent oil and gas company — disputes with a former owner and manager of one of its African subsidiaries • Various oil and gas companies — potential risks and mitigations, preparing compliance policies and providing training on ABC/AML issues • Global banking and investment company — advice on the impact of Russian sanctions on a proposed investment in a gas pipeline project • Defence company — advice on the impact of Iranian sanctions on a propose transaction in Iran
