Landmark International was formed in 2015 in recognition of the increase in work undertaken by our barristers in jurisdictions outside England and Wales.
International practice is both wide-reaching and innovative in its approach. We have acted in the domestic courts in a range of jurisdictions including Belize, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Trinidad & Tobago, and South Africa to name a few. A number of our barristers are registered foreign lawyers, with rights of audience, at the Dubai International Finance Centre Courts and/or the Singapore International Commercial Courts. Our experience in international public and environmental law means our barristers also have considerable experience of appearing before a range of international courts, tribunals and committees, including appeals to the Privy Council and proceedings before the UNECE Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee.
A number of our barristers are experienced in international Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and are members, or fellows, of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and/or members of the Hong Kong Institute of Arbitrators, appearing as Counsel in arbitral proceedings, and/or sitting as Arbitrators.
Our profile in international arbitration covers both commercial disputes, and increasingly, representing parties in bi-lateral investment treaty arbitration claims, with significant experience of acting for and against national-states in disputes which are often complex and long-running.
In addition to providing advice and representation in court or arbitration proceedings, Landmark International provides consultancy services to governments, public authorities and international bodies regarding the implementation, or reform, of constitutional or regulatory frameworks. This work often gives rise to very specialist issues of law and legal practice on which mainstream consultancies may not be able to advise.
In 2017 we launched Landmark Flex – an innovative service that recognises the need for highly-skilled, cost effective and flexible legal resource in the international marketplace. Aimed at private practice lawyers and corporate counsel, Flex provides legal professionals with the opportunity to instruct high-calibre barristers with varying levels of experience who can be called upon at short notice to provide additional support to your internal team, either on-site in your office, or working remotely.
