About Global Arbitration Review
Launched in 2006, GAR is the leading resource on international arbitration news and community intelligence.
News and awareness
GAR prides itself on publishing reliable and informative arbitration news, providing readers with breaking news updates five days a week, original annual reports and surveys, and in-depth features covering issues in international arbitration around the world. GAR's dedicated team of journalists travel to report globally and have established a wide network of contacts to break news first.
Each year GAR publishes our unique signature survey: the GAR 100, a guide to specialist arbitration firms worldwide. The survey points readers to dependable counsel, offering extensive qualitative analysis of arbitration practices around the world. Firms are stringently researched and assessed to ensure that only the elite are listed, with the GAR 30 ranking the very best.
GAR Live events are innovative and interactive, encouraging audience participation throughout. Topical discussions are followed by a symposium session with submitted questions and a live debate. Some of the leading figures in international arbitration gather in the world's major cities to debate key issues, creating live content for our magazine.
Know-how and reviews
We work with leading experts from around the world to produce regional knowledge guides. GAR Know-how is a free to view online reference resource where select experienced local practitioners provide answers to the commonly-asked questions of international dispute resolution practice. GAR also publishes three annual reviews offering insight from the foremost practitioners at the leading firms in the Americas; Europe, the Middle East & Africa; and the Asia-Pacific region; with a focus on the hot topics of the moment.
GAR is published by Law Business Research Limited, an independent, multi award-winning publisher of research, data and analysis on international business law and international legal markets.
