GAR selects its GAR 30 firms following a detailed analysis of each firm’s composition and activity, including such metrics as the number of arbitration hearings held during the period under review, the value at stake in the arbitrations, and the number of lawyers in the group recognized as leading arbitration practitioners.

“We are delighted to be named in the GAR 30 for the fifth consecutive year and to have made such significant strides up the table. Our continued inclusion in this elite list confirms the results of the firm’s undertaking to build a top-of-class arbitration practice to serve our clients across the globe in three ways, be that in the firm’s focus industries, by specific geographic regions, or by arbitration specialisms. Our 100-plus international arbitration lawyers are very gratified by this recognition from Global Arbitration Review,” commented Peter Rosher, global head of the firm’s international arbitration practice.
