The KWM London Dispute Resolution team, led by partners Andrei Yakovlev, Darren Roiser and Wilson Antoon, has been recognised by Legal 500 for its high-profile work in International Arbitration, Public International Law and Commercial Litigation.

Our clients praised the team as “a real competitor against the very best disputes practices within the magic circle and US law firms” with “unrivalled access to Chinese clients and an unparalleled knowledge of China-related disputes”. 

Our London team was recognised for representing clients in high-value, high-stakes disputes and for having “successfully defended states against investor claims in the banking, energy, telecoms, mining, natural resources and real estate sectors”.

KWM’s clients said: 

  • “First-class ability to organise flexible teams to meet the challenges of successfully running big arbitrations”.

  • “An excellent and diverse team. They are a pleasure to deal with and are very results-focused.”

  • “KWM is an excellent and focused team which routinely punches above its weight in terms of the instructions it obtains. Its lawyers have excellent industry knowledge and technical skill.”

  • “KWM has an excellent team of lawyers, with the right person for each aspect of the job from partner to paralegal. They worked very effectively with counsel and the lay client. I would be extremely happy to work with them again and to recommend them.”

London Managing Partner, Darren Roiser was recognised as a Next Generation Partner and several members of the team were recognised as key individuals.

Clients described Partner Andrei Yakovlev as “a seasoned and respected arbitration practitioner” who provides “quality and effective representation to his clients”.
