International Arbitration At A Glance

Capabilities and Services

International arbitration is now the preferred method of resolving cross-border disputes across a diverse range of industries and geographies. Over the last decade, the number of international arbitration proceedings has grown steadily -- and so too has the complexity and value of those disputes, which often require, increasingly sophisticated economic analysis and advice.

For over half a century, NERA experts have been central to client success in some of the world's highest-profile disputes, regulatory proceedings, and business challenges. Our international arbitration experts help clients through all stages of the arbitration process, providing specialized expertise in both commercial and investment treaty arbitrations. Our experts provide authoritative, independent economic analysis, valuation opinions, causation determinations, damages assessments, regulatory opinions, expert reports, and testimony. They draw on decades of experience, combined with specialized knowledge and deep expertise in regulated industries and competitive markets. NERA economists have provided these services in major arbitration venues around the world, from the US to Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.

NERA's arbitration team has experience providing expert testimony on economic principles, industry practices, and economic interpretations of contractual rights. Our experts are recognized for presenting rigorous and sophisticated applications of accepted economic and financial theory and for communicating concepts, opinions, findings and conclusions in a clear, understandable and persuasive manner.

NERA experts are retained in disputes related to bilateral investment treaties, in arbitration cases over insurance coverage for political risk, in pre-arbitration damage assessments, in the process of contract renegotiation for the avoidance of arbitration, and in the formulation of strategies to deal with termination of concessions. We also regularly consult on market restructuring issues, regulatory design and reform, due diligence, and provide strategic advice.
