Organisers

Fox Williams is an independent, progressive law firm located in the City of London. Our clients range from entrepreneurs and start-ups to household names and multinational companies.

We pride ourselves on our values, the work we do for our clients and the importance that we attach to our culture. Our focus is on delivering excellence to our clients in everything that we do.

Our international arbitration group helps clients in arbitration disputes arising from international trade and especially those involved in logistics, commodities, construction and engineering, mining, energy, joint ventures, M&A disputes, banking and finance, telecoms, and the sale and purchase of goods and services. We work with clients from all over the world and wherever the arbitrations are located. We also help clients who need the intervention of national courts in support of arbitration, whether that is the appointment of a tribunal, injunctions in aid of arbitration or the enforcement of an award.

The co-heads of our international arbitration group are Peter Ashford and Ben Giaretta.
