March 2024 – Hughes Hubbard was named to the GAR 100, the Global Arbitration Review’s annual ranking of the world’s leading international arbitration practices. The publication lauded the firm’s recent work, including a rare annulment at the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes; a $340 million settlement in favor of biotech company BeiGene; and representing Deutsche Telekom in U.S. proceedings to enforce a $135 million treaty award against India.

“The modern arbitration practice was started around 50 years ago by Axel Baum in Paris and John Townsend in Washington, DC,” the publication wrote. “They acted for Siemens in the influential Dutco case (establishing principles for appointing arbitrators in multiparty disputes) and obtained the first contested award for an American party before the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal.”

Other attorneys mentioned by name in the article included James Boykin, Sébastien Bonnard, Diego Durán de la Vega, Remy Gerbay and Nicolas Swerdloff.
