Public International Law and International Human Rights Law

Our academic background gives us unparalleled insight into some of the most complex issues arising today in the international and multijurisdictional spheres.

With an in-depth understanding of all aspects of public international law and international human rights law, we provide advice and representation to NGOs and individual claimants on both contentious and non-contentious matters.

We advise and represent on a wide variety of disputes, such as:

  • inter-state disputes, including cases before the International Court of Justice and Permanent Court of Arbitration
  • land and maritime boundary disputes
  • investor-state disputes including those before the ICSID (International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes)
  • international environmental disputes including climate change litigation

We also advise and represent individual litigants in matters raising questions of Public International Law, such as diplomatic protection and immunity from criminal and civil prosecution.

We also act for NGOs and claimants on non-contentious matters. Our expertise includes:

  • treaty obligations, including how to interpret and implement them domestically
  • international humanitarian law
  • international and regional human rights law
  • state succession, including succession to responsibility
  • responsibility of international organisations
  • recognition and representation on questions before the United Nations
