Commercial Arbitration

Stone Falcon specialises in both ‘ad hoc’ and Institutional arbitrations. We focus on two areas of disputes - those arising between parties to Joint Venture agreements within the International Oil and Gas Industry, and disputes that arise post M&A activities.


Samir Hanna is a consultant for Stone Falcon in arbitration: he shares expertise with Christopher Lennon for arbitral disputes in which either himself or Christopher Lennon is appointed and acts as arbitrator.
