Salans has launched an arbitration practice in London.

The new department will be headed by counsel George Burn and is to consist of three partners, a consultant and four assistants.

The decision to build the practice is part of Salans’ strategy to grow an international arbitration capability to service all its offices worldwide.

Salans’ launch follows in the footsteps of other US firms, such as O’Melveny & Myers, which launched its arbitration group in London last year.
