Results matter, and ours are unmatched. For example, our International Arbitration team has secured a larger number of consecutive positive defense outcomes for sovereign states in investor-state arbitrations—45, at last count—than any other firm in the world (see brochure). We also have a strong track record on behalf of investors, for whom we have secured some of the largest damages awards in ICSID history. In the commercial arbitration space, our team is known for handling sensitive, complex and high-stakes disputes under all major arbitral rules, and is widely acclaimed for its oral argument and cross-examination skills in the hearing room. With highly ranked leading practitioners based in eight offices across the US, UK, China, and South Korea, the team offers clients a practice of exceptional depth and scope.
