News

WilmerHale’s International Arbitration Group is again ranked in Band 1 in the 2009 edition of Chambers UK in the Dispute Resolution (International Arbitration) area for their exceptional work and reputation. Commentators declared themselves “tremendously impressed” with the “fantastically strong” team. Chambers notes that '[a]ccording to clients, the firm's arbitration practice is characterized on both sides of the Atlantic by its "familiarity with the landscape in which we operate," and above all by its "understanding of the peculiarities of truly international arbitration."'

"Utterly phenomenal" WilmerHale Partner Gary Born was ranked as the only “Star Performer” in the area of Dispute Resolution (International Arbitration) in London. Chambers UK noted that Born’s combination of intellect and practicality “makes fans of clients who are congenitally disinclined to be impressed by any lawyer.”

WilmerHale partners Steven Finizio and Franz Schwarz were also recognized as leading practitioners in the area of Dispute Resolution (International Arbitration) in London.

Steven Finizio 'displays “a striking meticulousness” without overcomplicating matters: “He can take on a lion of a case and make it easy for the panel to get a grip on it.”'

Franz Schwarz 'is familiar with large disputes and is advising on a number of multibillion-dollar telecoms matters.'

Chambers and Partners determine its rankings after thousands of interviews with lawyers and clients. The guide ranks solicitors and barristers in over 60 practice areas. Since its first publication in 1990, Chambers UK has established a reputation as one of the most respected referral guides for leading law firms and individuals in the United Kingdom.
