International legal practice Norton Rose LLP has in the 2012 edition of Chambers Asia-Pacific, one of the leading international legal services directories, been ranked in the top tier for “Dispute Resolution (International Firms): India”. This is a new ranking and sources say: "We're deeply impressed by the dedication that they showed us." "Very thorough professionals."

The latest edition of Chambers Global, launched on 16 March 2012, also listed London Norton Rose LLP in the top tier for the “Dispute Resolution: India - Experts Based Abroad” category. Sources praised Joe Tirado, the head of International Arbitration and ADR, saying he is "fantastic to work with due to his knowledge of the law and his understanding of our business."

In addition, in the recently published Global Arbitration Review 100, Norton Rose LLP has been ranked amongst the top 20 international law firms globally. The GAR quotes the general counsel of an Indian aviation and travel corporation as saying "As an organisation, we would never have achieved the settlement that we finally achieved if it was not for the brilliance, perseverance, strategic and timely advice of the star team led by Joe [Tirado] and Sherina [Petit]. I hope we never have to ever fight any battle of this nature, but if we did, hell would have to freeze over before we instructed anyone else other than this stupendous team.”
