Appleton & Associates
Appleton & Associates is a law firm with extensive experience of resolving complex international business disputes in North America, South America and Europe. We represent both businesses and governments in relation to international commercial, investment and trade matters.

Established in 1994, we pioneered the first international arbitration claim under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) winning a landmark settlement in favour of our client. Since then, we have brought many pioneering actions on behalf of major multinational companies, financial institutions and business corporations to protect foreign investments and international trade rights, under the NAFTA, the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreements, and many other international trade and investment treaties.

We can advise on and conduct arbitrations under all major arbitration rules, including the ICSID (International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes), UNCITRAL (United Nations Commission on International Trade Law), AAA (American Arbitration Association), LCIA (London Court of International Arbitration) and ICC (International Chamber of Commerce) Rules. We can also provide advice and assistance in relation to the recognition and enforcement of international arbitration awards before domestic courts.
