Cravath, Swaine & Moore, a large New York firm, and known for it's conservativeness, has raised some eyebrows with the announcement that they have moved one of their chief litigation partners, John Beerbower, their small London office. This move signals the conservative firm is making a commitment to their overseas office.

Not many US firms have a permanent litigation division in England.

This move may signal that other large firms may follow suit, though this is unclear.

Cravath represented the Republic of Suriname in an arbitration proceeding commenced by the Republic of Guyana pursuant to the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea arising from a dispute concerning the maritime boundary between Guyana and Suriname. The Tribunal decided that the boundary between the two countries in the historic territorial sea should be a line 10 degrees east of true north, a line sought by Suriname, rejecting Guyana's claim to a line that was 34 degrees east of true north. In the Exclusive Economic Zone (from 12 miles to 200 miles), the Tribunal decided that the boundary should be a strict unadjusted equidistance line, rejecting the claims of both parties to a different line. The Tribunal also confirmed Suriname's ownership of the Corentyne River and constructed the 10 degree boundary so as to give Suriname control over the mouth of the river. The Tribunal criticized both countries for their conduct over a drilling incident and in failing to reach a negotiated arrangement, but rejected Guyana's claim for $34 million in reparations. The lawyers involved in this matter are litigation partners Paul C. Saunders and Stephen S. Madsen and associate Rebecca R. Silber.
