International Arbitration

For over half a century, NERA Economic Consulting experts have been central to client success in some of the world’s highest-profile disputes, regulatory proceedings, and business challenges. Our international arbitration team, backed by more than 400 economists around the world, are recognized leaders in providing the level of economic support needed in today’s arbitration cases.

We work closely with our clients through every stage of the arbitration process and provide thorough analyses based on well-established economic, financial, and valuation principles. We have a reputation for objectivity and draw on decades of extensive litigation experience to help law firms and companies navigate a wide range of disputes in various arbitration venues.

Our experts have worked on some of the most complex and important international arbitration cases in the world. Our extensive experience and knowledge of industries and markets enables us to provide the independent advice and expert testimony needed for successful outcomes across all arbitration venues. Our team of experts has conducted numerous damages, valuation, and compensation analyses in both commercial and investor-state arbitrations, using sophisticated financial and economic modeling techniques.

The NERA difference is that our experts bring a strong applied industry expertise and provide a uniquely rigorous analytical approach and unwavering commitment to independent and unbiased expert opinions. Our economic experts have substantial direct experience with key markets and industries. NERA’s broad range of industry expertise includes energy, transport, telecom, health care, life sciences, financial services, and securities, among others.

NERA’s experts are retained in disputes related to commercial agreements, bilateral investment treaties, and insurance coverage for political risk. We provide damage assessments in the process of contract renegotiation for avoiding arbitration, and in formulating strategies to deal with the termination of concessions. Our team is global, but we also provide a strong local presence and native language capabilities.

NERA’s experts regularly testify in arbitration proceedings under all major institutional and procedural rules, including:

  • International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)
  • London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA)
  • Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC)
  • International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID)

NERA brings a uniquely rigorous approach to conducting sophisticated economic analysis and offering advice on appropriate, realistic, and practical real-life answers. We have spent decades explaining complex matters to laypeople and advising governments and global organizations on matters that affect nations and consumers.
