Philip Robben is head of the firm’s International Arbitration team. His practice focuses on international and domestic litigation and arbitration. Philip’s experience includes the representation of multinational clients across a range of commercial disputes, including claims arising from software development and implementation projects, corporate governance issues, fraud, insurance coverage, claims under bilateral investment treaties (BITs), and the defense of U.S. False Claims Act and other “whistle-blower” lawsuits.
Philip has represented companies involved in many industries, including software and IT consulting, security services, construction, pharmaceuticals, industrial manufacturing, banking and finance, life insurance, telecommunications, business process outsourcing (BPOs), and consumer products. A substantial part of his practice is devoted to counseling multinational companies that do business in the United States.
Philip pairs superior writing skills and attention to detail with tenacity and curiosity. Philip’s clients value that he personally handles their cases, learns about their business, and is highly responsive to their specific needs. He works to resolve every dispute in his client’s best interests, guided by a deep understanding of the client’s business and focused on the client’s goals.
Philip also understands the cultural miscues that can result when parties from different countries work—and fight—with each other. Because many of his clients are international, and do not have an understanding of the U.S. legal system, Philip is appreciated for taking the time to explain their options in an actionable manner and advise them as to a recommended course of action that makes sense for their business and goals.
