International Arbitration partners Sherina Petit, Alejandro Garcia and Daniel Wilmot all feature in the latest edition of the Who’s Who Legal guide to the leading arbitration practitioners worldwide.

Who’s Who Legal annually publishes a list of the leading arbitration practitioners globally, formulated from an independent analysis of 130,000 data points and other research sources and, importantly, peer and client feedback. Inclusion in the list is highly competitive.

Sherina and Alejandro have again been top ranked in the listings as ‘Recommended’ individuals that are considered leaders in the field of international arbitration in the UK. Daniel is listed as a ‘Future Leader’, a list of practitioners aged 45 and under regarded as pre-eminent names in the field in the future.

In addition, WWL produces a ‘Most Highly Regarded’ list of practitioners within the ‘Future Leader’ categories from those jurisdictions within certain geographical groupings. Inclusion is based on those who received the most nominations or were otherwise assessed as being leaders in their field. Daniel was included within the EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) geographical grouping – one of only 20 lawyers to be included within the prestigious list, and one of only three from the UK.

The inclusion of all three of the team’s partners by WWL reflects the diverse strengths and depth of experience of the International Arbitration team.
