Chair of the International Arbitration Group, Gary Born, has been named one of the world's leading arbitration practitioners in Who’s Who Legal’s International Who’s Who of Commercial Arbitration 2012. The publication places Born with a short list of other highly-regarded arbitration counsel and arbitrators. In naming him, Who’s WhoLegal said, “Born is recognised as one of the most highly nominated lawyers in this year’s research, and is a ‘formidably skilled and extremely effective arbitrator’”
Earlier this year, Born received the inaugural "Advocate of the Year" award from the Global Arbitration Review and is one of only three lawyers in the world, and the only lawyer in London, to receive global “starred” status in Chambers rankings. He is described by competitors and clients in Chambers and other publications as “awesome,” “inimitable,” “a force of nature,” “stellar,” a “powerful advocate,” “extremely talented” and “utterly phenomenal.”
Partner and Vice Chair of the International Arbitration Group Franz Schwarz, Partner Steven Finizio, and Partner and Vice Chair of the International Arbitration Group Rachael Kent also received high levels of recommendation for commercial arbitration in Who’s Who Legal’s International Who’s Who of Commercial Arbitration 2012.
