Public international law

Within: Public international law

Clifford Chance LLP has significant bench strength in international investment arbitration, as well as in complex and politically sensitive issues in the field of public international law; its team has recently advised on claims to self-governance by constituent territories within states and the application of human rights law within territories under occupation. The practice has also seen a growth in Brexit-related instructions, such as advising on the implications of restrictions on foreign investment; alternative EU membership models; and inbound and outbound trade-law issues post-Brexit. Recent work for practice heads Audley Sheppard and Rae Lindsay includes acting for the claimants in substantial investment treaty proceedings against various states; advising on issues arising in territories in conflict and/or under occupation; and assisting with matters concerning human rights law. Jessica Gladstone advises corporate clients, international organisations and states on WTO rules (including state aid rules and subsidies issues), as well as on international sanctions.
