International Arbitration partner Philippa Charles features in the Future Leaders 2018 guide for Arbitration by Who’s Who Legal.

Head of International Arbitration Philippa Charles is one of only two London-based lawyers to make the European-wide top 10 most highly regarded partners list.

She is described as “a real force of nature” for her vast knowledge of international arbitration and her “bright and engaging” advocacy skills. 

Al Trent is also listed as a highly regarded partner in the first year he has been eligible for consideration, and is commended as “an energetic, straight-talking arbitration lawyer who is going places”.

Philippa’s and Al’s rankings mean that Stewarts is considered a leading firm within the guide.

This is the second year that Who’s Who Legal has looked at the pre-eminent lawyers aged 45 or under in the market that are considered to be future leaders of the arbitration profession.

The research covers law firms and independent practices, and a total of 521 individuals with exemplary standing as arbitrators and counsel are highlighted.
