Practice-specific highlights:

  • The firm’s arbitration team secured a victory for an Arab high-net-worth individual and his family in a $250 million international arbitration seated in Geneva involving highly complex issues and non-signatories that Karim A. Youssef has world-class expertise in.

The firm’s team also secured a full award on costs.
