We are delighted to be ranked by Legal Week for this prestigious accolade which is new to The Middle East Legal Awards this year. Our arbitration practice has grown considerably and now spans across London, Paris, Geneva and the Middle East.

The Middle East Legal Awards, jointly hosted by Legal Week and the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Middle East chapter, recognises outstanding legal achievement in leadership, innovation and work on game-changing projects and initiatives.

Patrick Gearon, Head of the Middle East practice said “Charles Russell Speechlys is particularly proud to be the only Bahrain based law firm to have made it to the finals in Construction, Litigation and Arbitration “Team of the Year” awards. We were especially delighted to have secured a Highly Commended Award for our growing international arbitration practice.”
