The accompanying profile of the firm’s arbitration practice discusses several recent matters in which Cleary Gottlieb is involved, the firm’s relationship with a number of sovereign governments and corporate clients, and the growth of the practice and the firm.

The survey reports that the firm is counsel in 63 pending cases with a total value of $120 billion. The firm’s work on the Brazilian telecoms arbitrations, advising Russia in the Yukos Energy Charter Treaty case and the Noga matter, and advising Argentina in the ICSID matter is highlighted.
