In the 2021 edition of Chambers Global, Three Crowns maintained a leading ranking for international arbitration, with four partners recognised individually for their exceptional work and skills, Constantine Partasides QC, Gaëtan Verhoosel, Georgios Petrochilos, and Todd Wetmore. In addition, the firm maintains a leading ranking in public international law.
Chambers highlighted Three Crowns’ expertise in both international commercial and investment arbitration, particularly in Europe and Latin America, and the firm’s experience representing sovereign states and private sector heavyweights. The firm is recognised for its in-depth knowledge of arbitration disputes arising in the energy, natural resources, financial services, and construction sectors. A source notes the strength of Three Crowns’ “considerable expertise, deep knowledge of international law and the arbitration process, superb advocacy skills, and constant focus.”
