WTO and Other International Organizations
Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher works with clients to develop responses, in conjunction with their governments, to activities considered to be inconsistent with the rules promulgated by the World Trade Organization. Our practice group members also provide counsel in understanding the implications of WTO panel reports, and represent clients before United Nations tribunals.
Recent representations include:
- Won for client a $505 million award, from the United Nations Compensation Commission, as compensation for losses caused by Iraq's invasion and occupation of Kuwait in August 1990. This was the largest UNCC award made to any U.S. corporate claimant.
