White & Case's International Arbitration Practice Group has maintained its Band One ranking in Chambers Global, one of only two firms worldwide to be recognized in the highest category.
Chambers Global notes: "With 150 experts based in 17 offices worldwide, this firm is distinguished by the depth and breadth of its international arbitration practice. The group is highly skilled in a wide variety of matters, including investment protection, construction disputes and commercial arbitration. It continues to expand its global presence in emerging markets such as Latin America, CEE and the CIS, and is renowned for its high-profile activities in New York, Washington, DC, Paris, Stockholm, London and Singapore. The firm represents Ukraine in a series of unrelated arbitrations. Other notable highlights include acting for the Republic of the Philippines in an ICSID dispute relating to the construction of the passenger terminal at Manila's International Airport. Other key clients include the Republic of Bulgaria, WSP Polska and the Republic of Peru." Sources say: "Their top-tier ranking is deserved – they have a strong global footprint."
