White & Case scored 92 Band 1 rankings from Chambers Global 2017: 43 for practices and 49 for individual lawyers. The Firm won Band 1 rankings worldwide on four continents.

The rankings included Band 1 Global rankings in the Arbitration (International), Construction and Projects & Energy categories. The rankings also included two Band 1 global rankings each, in the Arbitration (International) category and the International Arbitration: Arbitrators category, for International Arbitration Practice partners Carolyn B. Lamm (Washington, DC) and Paul Friedland (New York). This is the fifth year in a row in which Lamm and Friedland have achieved the Band 1 ranking for International Arbitration.
