King & Spalding Once Again Earns Top Spot on Global Arbitration Review’s GAR 30 Ranking

NEW YORK, Mar. 31, 2023 – Global Arbitration Review has once again selected King & Spalding as the top international arbitration practice worldwide in its “GAR 30” guide to the world’s leading international arbitration practices. 

Global Arbitration Review cited the practice’s growth as “one of the success stories of the modern arbitration era.” 

The publication highlighted the international arbitration group’s strong results for clients, including:

  • a successful denial of justice claim for Chevron against Ecuador, establishing that a US$9 billion local court judgment against the company was ghost-written;
  • a US$2 billion ICSID award for Spain’s Naturgy and Italy’s Eni against Egypt, which led to the settlement of a long-running dispute over an LNG plant;
  • defeating a US$1.7 billion claim by India against client Reliance Industries over gas migration between adjacent fields;

The GAR 30 quotes King & Spalding’s clients describing the firm’s practice as “the very best arbitration law firm we have ever worked with,” “committed and highly skilled,” “very pragmatic,” “amazing” and having “the guts to stick to a strategy.”
