Magdalena has more than ten years’ experience advising and representing clients in connection with disputes arising in various industry sectors, including energy and natural resources, trade, construction and cross-border production activity. In recent years she has handled high-profile commercial and investment treaty arbitrations under all major institutional rules, seated in both civil and common law jurisdictions. Magdalena’s experience spans representing clients in negotiations with governments leading to successful settlements in investment treaty arbitrations.

Her recent work includes acting for an investor in an unprecedented investment case concerning cross-border production within the EU and addressing jurisdictional objections based on the Achmea judgment.
