ICSID Lawyers - The International Investment Arbitration Law Firm

ICSID Lawyers helps foreign investors manage & advance their international legal rights against sovereign states.

ICSID Lawyers offers both proactive & reactive international legal services:

Reactive services are the type that are sought after a dispute has arisen or is foreseen to arise in the future. Reactive services do not allow for the breadth of possible action, creativity and strategic management that proactive services affords clients. For superior results, whenever possible, our proactive services should be retained.

Proactive services are those that are sought prior to their being a dispute and are deployed to prevent a dispute from occuring and/or to maximize your foreign investment's international legal protection so that should a legal dispute arise in the future, the foreign investor will be in the best possible legal position to advance their claim and obtain just recovery for their losses. Our proactive services can potentially also identify existing claims you are not aware of, which is especially important as in many instances time is literally of the essence as many claims have ridgid time bars/temporal jurisdiction, e.g. they must be initiated within 3 years of occurence.

Our proactive international investment arbitration service analyzes your global corporate structure, operations & investments, and investigates whether your current configuration maximizes the benefit of foreign investment legal protections, political risk insurance coverage, political advocacy, etc. and in that process also assesses whether you may already have a claim to advance that you are not yet aware of.

Whether you are planning to invest or have invested in a country where you do not have citizenship, ICSID Lawyers provides a valuable service to benefit you.

If you have already invested in a foreign country and the government in that country has interfered with your investment contact ICSID Lawyers to obtain your free international investment arbitration claim assessment and to explore your options.
