Mannheimer Swartling named to GAR30 ranking of world’s leading arbitration practices; seventh year in a row

“…Swedish firms are unusually good at international arbitration. And none is better than Mannheimer Swartling.” (Global Arbitration Review, 2014)

For the seventh year running, Mannheimer Swartling has been included in the GAR100, Global Arbitration Review’s listing of the world’s most prominent international arbitration practices, as well as in the elite GAR30 ranking of the world’s 30 most active arbitration law firms. Mannheimer Swartling has been named to the GAR30 every year since the ranking was introduced and is the only Nordic firm to receive this recognition in the 2014 edition.

The results were announced at the GAR Awards dinner held in Paris on 12 February.
Global Arbitration Review writes:

“…the firm has helped shape arbitration in Sweden and beyond. Its members have been at the heart of local and foreign arbitral institutions – for example, it was Mannheimer Swartling lawyers who represented Sweden on the UNCITRAL working groups that developed the Model Law – and can still be found there…Within the firm, the arbitration team is a dominant element. It’s also often the best-performing team from a civil law jurisdiction in the GAR 30.”

The ranking criteria used by the Global Arbitration Review include, amongst others, the combined value of the number of merit hearings in international arbitrations that the firm has appeared in as counsel during the past two years, the firm’s level of activity in investment treaty arbitrations, as well the reputation of the practice’s individuals and the arbitrator work they attract.
