Global Recognition December 13, 2016

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright is delighted to announce that six of its lawyers have been listed in the inaugural ‘Future Leaders – Arbitration’ guide, published by Who’s Who Legal.

The list is composed of partners and non-partners (associates, of counsel, and legal consultants) aged 45 or under who are considered the future leaders of the international arbitration community.

To compile the list, Who's Who Legal conducts a comprehensive independent survey using recommendations from both general counsel and private practice lawyers globally to determine those lawyers considered specialists in their practice area.

The six Norton Rose Fulbright lawyers are as follows with commentary on each individual from Who’s Who Legal:


Sherina Petit, partner and Head of India practice, London: "She has a thorough understanding of the entire arbitration process from a macro and micro level. Her personal level of involvement and how passionate she is about the case have stood out"

James Rogers, partner, London: “Praised for his leadership qualities as well as for his "superb" legal skills”

Andrey Panov, senior associate, Moscow: “‘A rising star’ who has ‘a scientific approach and a natural understanding of international arbitration’"


Darius Chan, senior associate, Singapore: “A ‘very, very smart guy and a great all-round lawyer’ who is ‘building a strong reputation in the market’"


Lucy Greenwood, foreign legal consultant, Houston: An ‘up-and-coming’ counsel and arbitrator, and ‘a leader in international arbitration’”

Darius Chan also featured on the list of ‘Most Highly Regarded Individuals’ – the lawyers who have received the largest number of market recommendations.
