Global Arbitration Review (GAR) has revealed its most recent ranking of the world’s leading international arbitration practices, with the 16th edition of the GAR 30 ranking announced at its annual awards ceremony in Paris on 30 March 2023. Clifford Chance has maintained its top 10 ranking for the fifth year in a row, moving up one place and being ranked 6th in the world.

The GAR 30 is based on a quantitative analysis, ranking firms according to a number of different factors over a two-year period. The research considers merits and jurisdictional hearings, the amount in dispute in those cases and the number of hours billed to arbitration over that period. The number of high value matters settled during the window and the portfolio value of a firm’s active arbitration caseload is also taken into account.

It also considers the number of arbitrator appointments a firm’s members have received and the number of individuals who appear in GAR’s sister publication, Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration – a peer selected guide to the leading practitioners, where we have 27 people featured (15 in the main guide and 12 Future Leaders).

It is an excellent result and well-deserved recognition for us globally, and a testament to the talent of the whole team.
