Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP finds favor for its ‘skills of legal analysis‘ and its ‘intercultural, diverse group‘. Largely concentrated in the firm’s Washington DC and New York offices, the national practice also benefits from a platform in Miami, which is utilised by Latin America specialist Luis O’Naghten to plug into the LatAm region. The firm covers the full scope of arbitration matters, from commercial, through to investor-state and state-to-state cases, and is active across the globe. Washington DC is the seat of high-profile arbitration co-chair John Townsend, who has served as arbitrator in over 85 arbitrations, spanning all major arbitration rules. James H. Boykin, also in Washington DC, spearheads the investment treaty arbitration practice; a key contact for German-speaking clients, Boykin is representing Deutsche Telekom in a petition to enforce an arbitral award against the Republic of India. Rémy Gerbay and Diego Durán de la Vega are also noted in Washington DC. In New York, arbitration co-chair Hagit Muriel Elul is held up as ‘a force to be reckoned with‘, and had a strong recent run in pharmaceutical-related cases. Daniel Weiner, who has a focus on IP disputes, is also recommended in New York.
