C&S Ranked Once Again Among Finest International Arbitration Law Firms

Castrén & Snellman’s dispute resolution team is thrilled to be recognized, for the second consecutive year, as one of the world's leading international arbitration practices in the GAR 100 list published by the Global Arbitration Review.

Now in its 14th edition, The GAR 100 is an annual guide to international arbitration that lists the world’s leading international arbitration practices. The criteria used in the GAR 100 survey are reputation, amount of work undertaken as well as experience. Once again, Castrén & Snellman is one of only two Finnish law firms recognised as specialists in international arbitration in the publication.

Our dispute resolution team was described as: “experienced team working professionally and seamlessly together, with commercial understanding providing clear and sound practical advice”. Our experts Marko Hentunen, Anders Forss, Tuomas Lehtinen, Niklas Langenskiöld ja Jerker Pitkänen were singled out for praise.

The GAR 100 pointed out our extensive record of successful cases, such as winning a rare set-aside of an arbitral award in Finland, acting in a Brussels-seated, English law construction arbitration under ICC rules worth over US$300 million and representing a Finnish energy company in a US$60 million arbitration related to an ongoing force majeure event.
