“We are very fortunate to add such high caliber partners to our international arbitration practice,” said Oliver J. Armas one of the leaders of the practice group. “Their significant experience across Europe, Asia and the Americas will complement and enhance our existing capabilities in emerging markets, and will help to support and reinforce our relationships in these regions.”

“This represents the addition of front line talent to what has already become a strong practice offering for our clients, with an experienced and deep bench,” added Chadbourne Managing Partner Andrew Giaccia. “We will continue to emphasize growth in this area in view of its synergies with our other key practices, including energy and infrastructure and our emerging markets profile.”



The addition of Beckett and Thorn add to the success of the firm over the past couple of years, specifically in the international arbitration area. The office in Dubai returned under the leadership of Jack Greenwald, who has 25 years of experience in UAE.
