Curtis Recognized as #1 Arbitration Firm and as Global 20 Firm

New York, NY, June 30, 2015 — Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP was ranked as the world's top law firm in International Arbitration by The American Lawyer. Curtis also was selected as a Global 20 law firm by Law360.

Curtis achieved its top ranking in The American Lawyer's bi-annual Arbitration Scorecard, published in the July 2015 edition of Focus Europe, which is based on the total number of billion dollar disputes a firm handled in 2013-2014.

Am Law wrote that the Firm's Chairman, George Kahale III, “has for years said his firm matches up pound for pound with any firm in arbitration. In the billion-dollar weight class, that appears to be true. This year, Curtis took the heavyweight belt with two dozen disputes.”

The prestigious annual Global 20 list of Law360 recognizes the 20 law firms which it considers “had the biggest global presence and handled the largest, most significant and groundbreaking international and cross-border matters over the past year.”
