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.
Practitioner insight - Know-how and reviews
Complementing our news service and GAR Live events, we also work with leading practitioners to provide the front-line view on important topics in international dispute resolution. These resources are all published free-to-view on the GAR website and are packaged into two distinct series:
GAR Know-how is an online Q&A resource which provides practitioners with a dynamic and global reference guide to particular dispute types. We currently have five know-hows: GAR Know-How: Commercial Arbitration, GAR Know-How: Construction Arbitration, GAR Know-How: Investment Treaty Arbitration, GAR Know-How: Litigation and GAR Know-How: Maritime & Offshore Arbitration and are working on new titles to provide even deeper coverage on international arbitration.
Alongside GAR Know-how we also publish three annual reviews providing first-hand insight into international arbitration in important jurisdictions around the world. The Arbitration Review of the Americas, The Asia-Pacific Arbitration Review and The European, Middle Eastern and African Arbitration Review focus on the regional issues and important cases, reflecting on what's been happening on-the-ground over the past year. Reviews are published free-to-view online and also in print: they are distributed to subscribers and are available at most GAR Live events.
We are always keen to hear from firms who are interested in helping us expand our jurisdictional or substantive coverage, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
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.
