The Brattle Group has been recognized as one of the leading firms in expert witness services in the field of international arbitration by Global Arbitration Review (GAR), a prominent resource on international arbitration news and intelligence. Ranked second on the publication’s new Power Index, Brattle was recognized for its high number of hearings and, with an average of over 3.2 billion USD, its exceptional performance in the value of its claims.
Brattle experts have been involved in matters related to international arbitration since the inception of the firm in 1990. Over the course of the last two years, the period studied by GAR for its rankings, Brattle has worked on 33 hearings, including some of the largest investor-state arbitrations in oil and gas, renewable energy, and mining. Notable cases cited in the publication’s listing include Perenco Ecuador Limited v the Republic of Ecuador and LSF-KEB Holdings SCA and others v Republic of Korea.
“We are very pleased by GAR’s recognition of our work as our practice grows and continues to attract a diverse set of matters and clients globally,” remarked Alexis Maniatis, Brattle President and member of the international arbitration practice. “I am especially proud of our team’s extraordinary work, dedication to detail, and passion for principle.”
Leveraging the methodology of the GAR 30 rankings, the publication used “the hearing” as a measure to determine how active a particular firm has been. To assess the number of hearings accumulated by a firm, the average value of those hearings, and the median value of those hearings, GAR surveyed law firms, which ensures the measures are third-party validated.
