Shearman & Sterling LLP is perhaps best known for its experience in the construction sector, but the team is equally adept at acting in international commercial- and investment treaty arbitrations for clients in the areas of mining and natural resources, energy, financial services, and chemicals. The US-based team is led out of New York by Henry Weisburg, and focuses on matters relating to the Americas. However, the team is an integral part of the firm-wide arbitration practice, and often acts on global matters in conjunction with its colleagues in Paris, London, and Abu Dhabi. The group has presence in Washington DC as well, where Christopher Ryan and Jonathan Greenblatt are the key contacts. Also recommended is New York-based Daniel Reich, who has had recent strong showings in post-M&A arbitration.
