GAR 100 - 12th Edition

Our GAR 100 is our guide to law firms 'approved' for international arbitration.

Why ‘approved’?

Over the years, it has become obvious that international arbitration is its own skillset – separate from more general litigation. Law firms in turn have responded, offering "international arbitration groups". Sometimes the label is fair. But sometimes the groups that are established are Potemkin villages. They look right, but they lack substance. They’re intended to lure work in.

How can users of international arbitration find firms that have the real experience – and the true ringcraft?

That’s where this guide comes inTwelve years ago, Global Arbitration Review published its first list of 100 firms we had approved for international arbiration. To earn that stamp of approval, the firm in question would have to open its books to our researchers so we could see what it had worked on, and in front of whom. Did it have a diet of "serious" international arbitration - before credible arbitrators? The result became the GAR 100.

Today, the GAR 100 offers advice on practices of all sizes from all parts of the world, all audited by GAR. It's grown beyond the original 100 firms: there are 174 firms in this, the 12th edition - and a subsection on the most active expert witness providers. There is also a ranking (the GAR 30) of the busiest practices, which is generated from the size and number of the disputes that have gone to hearings in the past two years.
