Litigating local disputes with international issues is different from litigating pure “domestic” disputes. And international arbitrations are different from domestic arbitrations. Miller Nash Graham & Dunn International Dispute lawyers understand how to make those differences work to a client’s advantage and understand how to explain to clients the differences between the dispute resolution system they are familiar with and the dispute resolution systems they find themselves in.

A party in a dispute with international issues has to plan its case differently. Foreign law may apply and needs to be proved. International conventions or letters rogatory may need to be used to obtain effective service or foreign discovery. And experienced foreign counsel is often necessary, to confirm what appears to be the applicable foreign law and provide declarations for court submittal, or to assist with the difficulties of discovery in a foreign country. Miller Nash Graham & Dunn’s lawyers with international dispute resolution expertise are familiar with the intricacies of litigating cases with international issues. And the firm has an extensive network of strong relationships with foreign counsel that can get the best foreign-law expert overnight when needed.

International arbitrations, unlike domestic arbitrations, are conducted before a variety of institutional tribunals under a variety of procedural rules. And they each have their own set of “unwritten” rules. The kind of advocacy that a good lawyer uses in an American arbitration may not necessarily be successful in an international arbitration. Cultural differences matter. An experienced international arbitration lawyer adjusts his or her “American” approach in particular ways to be an effective advocate. The Miller Nash Graham & Dunn lawyers who do this work have handled arbitrations before the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), CIETAC (China), the Singapore International Arbitration Center (SIAC), the International Arbitration Centre of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, the American Arbitration Association’s International Dispute Resolution Centre, and other well-known tribunals. Our lawyers know how to achieve the best results in these unique venues.

Miller Nash Graham & Dunn is proud to be counsel to Process Forwarding International, the entity appointed by the Department of Justice of the United States and with the U.S. Department of State to effect service of foreign process under The Hague Service Convention, The Hague Evidence Convention, and the Inter-American Convention.
