Arbitration / Alternative dispute resolution

FTPA has built a strong and recognized practice in arbitration.

Our dedicated team assists French or foreign clients in national and cross border arbitration processes, whether under French or foreign substantive laws, and acts in ad hoc arbitration or in institutional arbitration in front of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) or the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).

We act for clients, companies and their in-house legal teams, on complex technical disputes requiring full knowledge of proceedings and a strong expertise in technical, financial and legal issues that are likely to arise in such proceedings. We have built a specific expertise in construction and industrial disputes, in commercial disputes, termination of established commercial relationships involving distributors, foreign commercial agents or franchise agreements, as well as indemnification claims or disputes arising between shareholders in close cooperation with our M&A and corporate law team.

Our team members are multicultural and rely on various skills and expertise which allow us to advise and assist our clients, whether French or foreign, throughout the arbitral proceedings and at the stage of enforcement of arbitral awards.

Our team also assists clients in pursuing alternative and/or amicable dispute resolution methods such as mediation or conciliation processes or in negotiating settlement agreements.
