International Arbitration Partner, US firm to $2 million Back to List

We are dealing directly with the global managing partner in relation to this hire. The firm is world renowned for arbitration and has been involved in some of the largest and most high-profile international arbitration matters over the last 20 years, many of these matters were generated from the firm's platform.

Historically the practice has been more investor state focused but due to a few points and conflicts, the strategy is now to make the practice more weighted towards commercial arbitration. The international arbitration practice is a global practice group and the firm's management includes some key contentious partners reflecting the strategic importance of the area.

In terms of a new partner or team, a mix of commercial and investor state arbitration will still be of interest and you should be an arbitration partner/team with a strong reputation. The practice has a global reach and in terms of sectors, notable clients have been in the energy and construction sectors but that has only been because of the magnitude of the disputes (which tend to be bet-the-company cases) rather than arbitrations within those specific sectors.

Hence the practice tends to be quite broad both in geographical coverage and sectors. The firm performed well in 2020 and the well-established London office is committed to growth and is attracting some very well-regarded lawyers. This is a rare opportunity to join a practice of this pedigree and be instrumental in the global strategy.
