Among Norton Rose Fulbright‘s key attributes, sources highlight its ‘strategic thinking‘, ‘partner-led approach‘ and ‘mastery of the international arbitration domain‘. Mainly split between Houston, Washington DC, San Francisco and New York, the group also leverages the firm’s extensive global network to routinely work hand-in-hand with its offices abroad. The team is a prominent player in both commercial and investment treaty arbitrations, particularly in the energy and infrastructure fields, and it acts for both claimants and respondents. Houston-based Mark Baker co-heads the global international arbitration practice and is routinely appointed to represent major corporates in complex arbitrations, with an emphasis on the energy, infrastructure, transport and financial services sectors. Matthew Kirtland, noted for his ‘excellence in advocacy‘, is a key name in Washington DC. In a highlight state-side matter, Kirtland is representing the Republic of Kazakhstan in connection with multiple enforcement proceedings arising from a $500m Energy Charter Treaty award. Houston-based Kevin O’Gorman (‘a great lawyer‘) and New York’s Mina Matin are also key figures.
