For over three decades, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has maintained one of the world’s foremost international arbitration practices. We have two of the top 11 leading international arbitration individuals in Chambers Global 2012, and a total of nine partners ranked among the top lawyers in various guides. Our lawyers handle a wide range of the most challenging disputes and lead professional organisations dedicated to arbitration. In 2012, Debevoise received the Chambers USA Award for Excellence in International Arbitration. In the words of Legal 500 US 2010, Debevoise is ‘in a class of its own in the US, and among the top five internationally’.

Debevoise has achieved extraordinary results for our clients. For example, we and our co-counsel Bae Kim & Lee obtained an ICC award on behalf of our client Hyundai Heavy Industries worth at least $750 million, which was the 2010 Global Arbitration Review Arbitration Win of the Year.

At Debevoise, we pride ourselves not only on our victories for clients, but also on our continued devotion to improving arbitration practice. For example, in 2010 Debevoise issued a Protocol to Promote Efficiency in International Arbitration, which identifies 25 specific procedures intended to make arbitration more efficient. No other law firm has made such a public and specific commitment to promoting efficiency on behalf of our clients.

Rooted in our proud and distinguished history, yet embracing innovative ideas and practices, Debevoise continuously endeavours to establish the benchmark for international arbitration.
