Abby Cohen Smutny - White & Case LLP

Within: International arbitration

The 'exceptional' team at White & Case LLP has expertise in investor-state arbitration and can work 'seamlessly across multiple jurisdictions' in various industry sectors. Led by New York-based Paul Friedland, the team has been acting for the Republic of Uzbekistan on six matters, including securing the successful dismissal of a $132m ICSID case brought by Spentex Netherlands for alleged violations of applicable investment laws. The practice group is also acting for the Russian Federation in cross-border legal proceedings pertaining to the shareholders in YUKOS, who are seeking to recover in excess of $50bn on the basis of arbitral awards issued in 2014. In Washington DC, Carolyn Lamm, Andrea Menaker, Latin America arbitration head Jonathan Hamilton, and the ‘exceptional’ Abby Cohen Smutny are noted practitioners. Also recommended are New York-based Ank Santens and Silvia Marchili, the latter of whom joined the Houston office from King & Spalding LLP.
