Complex arbitration proceedings require experts with specialized insight into the economic and financial issues at the center of these disputes. With considerable expertise in a wide range of arbitration matters as well as deep industry experience, our international arbitration practice provides authoritative analysis in complex arbitration cases involving multinational parties.

Bringing to bear our extensive experience in all areas of international arbitration, Compass Lexecon’s economists and financial experts deliver independent economic analysis, valuation opinions, damages assessments, regulatory opinions, expert reports and arbitration testimony. Because many of our professionals have held senior-level positions with government regulatory agencies or have consulted extensively on global regulatory issues, they possess critical first-hand knowledge of government decision-making processes related to a wide range of matters—including commercial, investor-state, and political risk insurance disputes.
