Public international law (PIL)

We are one of the leading firms in this unique area of law and are regularly instructed by sovereign States, State entities, international bodies and multinational corporations on a wide range of contentious matters. This includes numerous State-to-State cases before the International Court of Justice and international tribunals, either in ad-hoc proceedings or those administered by the Permanent Court of Arbitration.

We also advise on non-contentious matters such as state responsibility, sovereign immunity, land and maritime boundary delimitation and treaty obligations.

Truly international in our practice, our team members are qualified in many jurisdictions, including Singapore, New York, England and Wales, France and Italy. Our team is also competent in numerous languages, including English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Malay, Tamil, Malayalam, Bahasa Indonesia, Japanese, Spanish, French and Italian.

Our recent work includes:

  • representing the Government of Colombia at the International Court of Justice in a dispute over several islands and the maritime boundary between the two States
  • representing Slovenia in an ICSID arbitration concerning a highway construction project in Slovenia
