Global law firm White & Case has maintained its Band One International Arbitration ranking in Chambers Global, one of two firms worldwide to be recognized in the highest category.
Chambers Global notes: "This global heavyweight enjoys an enviable position at the top of the international arbitration table thanks to the depth and breadth of its team. It offers strength across the board and is especially admired for its strength in the construction sector. The firm's strong presence in emerging markets such as Russia and the CIS, Asia and Latin America is paying dividends, as it continues to attract a significant market share of work from those regions. For example, the team acted for a leading Asian contractor on a USD1.4 billion ICC arbitration with a state petroleum company concerning the expansion and refurbishment of an oil refinery and pipelines. It is also well equipped to advise on complex investment treaty disputes, and has represented countries such as the Republic of Peru, the Republic of the Philippines and the Republic of Uzbekistan. Sources say: 'We have been very impressed with the professionalism and the efficiency of White & Case.' 'They provide a comprehensive approach to dispute resolution, and keen understanding of both the commercial and government issues involved.'"
