Chambers and Partners notes that the team is known for its ‘growing reputation in the PIL market thanks to its esteemed sanctions practice’. It also reports the firm is ‘frequently retained to advise individuals challenging sanctions and asset tracing measures imposed by the EU’ and comments that it has ‘additional capabilities in investment treaty arbitration, representing states and commercial entities before international tribunals.’ The Directory goes on to quote clients of the firm who said ‘they are very focused on understanding their clients’ needs, perspectives and constraints’ and ‘in terms of pure legal ability, each of its lawyers has been wonderful to work with because of their excellent analytical and strategic skills.’

The Legal 500 notes that ‘Carter-Ruck’s lawyers can be relied on to provide excellent, well-thought-out, intelligent advice.’ The team represented Al Jazeera Media Network in its arbitration claim against Egypt for the latter’s breaches of the treaty standards applicable to Qatari foreign investors. The practice stands out for targeted sanctions involving asset-freezing measures. Guy Martin, Cameron Doley and Miranda Rushton are ‘excellent for their intelligence and skills.’
