Clayton Utz has a large and established International Arbitration Group (‘IAG’). As well as pre-eminent local arbitration practitioners, the IAG comprises persons with extensive off-shore experience as counsel, arbitrators and officials of international arbitral organisations. The IAG takes a leading role in the promotion and development of international arbitration within Australia and the Asia-Pacific through research, publications, involvement in educational activities, and leadership roles in several arbitral institutions.

The IAG advises and represents companies and governments in international arbitration and ADR throughout the world with a particular focus on the Asia-Pacific region. The IAG has recently acted for, amongst others, an Asian government in an energy tariff arbitration, an Australian-Canadian joint venture in relation to a power station dispute, an American bank in an asset finance arbitration, and Anaconda Operations Pty Ltd in a dispute over a nickel/cobalt processing plant (currently one of the largest arbitrations in the world).
