White & Case received the inaugural "International Arbitration Client Service Award" at the Chambers USA Awards for Excellence ceremony held in New York on June 7, 2012.
The Awards honor outstanding firms on the basis of research carried out for Chambers USA 2012, reflecting notable achievements including excellence in client service.
At the Awards ceremony, Chambers USA cited the following client quotation about our US International Arbitration Practice: "The quality of the work is the most important thing for them. They listen well to what our needs are, and they will do what is necessary to deliver the highest quality of work to their client."
Chambers USA described our US International Arbitration Practice as a "global stalwart" which has "the depth of expertise to handle any size or type of international arbitration thrown its way. The team has tremendous experience on all sides of investor-state and commercial arbitrations across all industries. In two recent ground-breaking ICSID victories, the group established jurisdiction on behalf of sovereign bondholders in Abaclat v. Argentina - the first mass claim in investment arbitration history - and successfully claimed under an "umbrella clause" in the landmark decision of SGS v Paraguay."
