Gary Born Named Among World’s “Top 20 Arbitration Specialists”


The July-September 2006 issue of the PLC Cross-border Quarterly ranked Gary Born as one of the world’s “top 20 arbitration specialists.”

The article, titled “The Arbitration Elite: In a League of Their Own,” comments that as “one of the world’s leading arbitrators [Gary Born] continues to be in high demand as both counsel and arbitrator.” Mr. Born is among a short list of lawyers who were found to have “made strong contributions to the international arbitration community” and recognized accordingly for “the strength of their personal practices as well as that of their firms.” These findings are based on research undertaken for the fifth edition of the PLC Cross-border Dispute Resolution Handbook and PLC Which lawyer? and additional interviews with in-house counsel, fellow lawyers and barristers.

This recognition almost immediately follows the announcement made by the Legal Media Group regarding the selection of Mr. Born as the world’s leading international litigator in its poll of experts on international litigation.

Mr. Born chairs WilmerHale’s International Dispute Resolution and Arbitration practices and is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading authorities in both fields. He has been lead counsel in more than 300 international arbitrations and litigations, and is the author of several leading works on international arbitration and litigation, including, International Commercial Arbitration (2d ed. 2000 Kluwer/Transnational Publishers), and International Arbitration and Forum Selection Clauses (2d ed. 2006 Kluwer).

Mr. Born’s most recent book, International Civil Litigation in U.S. Courts (4th ed. 2006), will be released by Aspen Publishers this summer. All books may be purchased through the Aspen Publishers website at
