Leading European law firm Fieldfisher has been included in Global Arbitration Review's 2023 guide as one of the top 100 international arbitration practices in the world for the second year running.
GAR is the world's leading international arbitration journal and news service. The firm has secured a place in the 16th edition of the highly respected GAR 100. The guide commended the practice for its client roster including oil and gas, financial services and commodities companies, as well as sovereign states, state entities and high-net-worth individuals.
The firm's international arbitration practice, which comprises an integrated team of over 80 fee earners including 25 partners across its European network, has been boosted by the arrival of a number of market leading arbitration practitioners in the last year including Ania Farren in London, and Philipp Duncker in Munich.
The global arbitration practice is led from London by partners Simon Sloane and Daniel Hayward. Other prominent practitioners based in London include partners Ania Farren, Shivani Sanghi, Tracey Wright, Alexandra Underwood, Colin Gibson, Donna Goldsworthy, Priyanka Kapoor, James Lewis, Matt Hinxman and Arik Aslanyan, with Richard Waugh and Stephen May operating from Birmingham.
The Group’s European-based expert partners include Marily Paralika in Paris, Maxime Berlingin and Koen Van den Broeck in Brussels, Jonas Mark and Philipp Duncker in Munich, Alessandro Scagliarini in Milan, Mercè Caral in Barcelona and Andrés de la Quadra-Salcedo in Madrid.
Fieldfisher's arbitration client roster includes multiple sovereign states, state entities and high net worth individuals in the Telecoms, oil and gas, and financial services sectors in particular.
With experience in many of the world's major and emerging arbitration centres, in 2023, the firm is acting on significant LCIA, ICC and ICSID cases, among others.
