Debevoise & Plimpton LLP partners Catherine Amirfar, Ina Popova and Natalie Reid have contributed an updated national report for the United States for the latest edition of the ICCA International Handbook on Commercial Arbitration.

For almost 40 years, the ICCA Handbook has provided the arbitration community and the business world with up-to-date information on arbitration laws and practice in over 80 jurisdictions. Debevoise is proud to continue its longstanding contribution to the ICCA Handbook.

The firm’s International Dispute Resolution Group is co-chaired by Debevoise partners Catherine Amirfar and Mark Friedman. For over four decades, it has offered winning advocacy, commercial judgment, and a ferocious client dedication unmatched by any other firm in the world. The team is qualified in common law and civil law systems, speaks more than 35 languages, and works in nine offices across three continents. The team’s quality, tenacity, skill and experience has allowed it to achieve for its clients some of the largest and most significant awards in international arbitration and public international law. The Group was named International Arbitration Firm of the Year by Benchmark Litigation 2021 and 2022, and was recognized as a Law360 Practice Group of the Year in 2021. Global Arbitration Review has remarked that “if any team has consistently brought home ‘the big results,’ it seems to be Debevoise.”
