Law360 Names King & Spalding an International Arbitration Practice Group of the Year

NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2020 — Law360 has recognized King & Spalding’s International Arbitration practice as a 2020 Practice Group of the Year for “winning high-value awards for clients” and “leading multiple arbitrations in disputes brought under the Energy Charter Treaty.” This is the fourth time the firm has earned this recognition.

In its profile of the practice, Law360 highlights its favorable award for Cavalum SGPS SA, a renewable energy investor, against Spain in a dispute involving the legal framework for encouraging renewable electricity generation; the tribunal unanimously rejected Spain's intra-EU jurisdictional objection. Law360 also cites the group’s $4 billion victory for Shell and Chevron in a dispute against the Philippines.

Law360’s annual Practice Group of the Year honors are given to the law firms behind the “litigation wins and major deals that resonated throughout the legal industry” in the past year. The Practice Groups of the Year were selected from among 775 submissions from 81 law firms.

In addition to being named an International Arbitration Practice Group of the Year, the firm is also recognized as a 2020 Practice Group of the Year for Construction, Product Liability and Structured Finance.
