Edward Kehoe - King & Spalding LLP

Within: International arbitration

King & Spalding LLP fields a team of 'true international arbitration specialists', who skillfully handle investment and commercial arbitration matters, and have particular expertise in the energy sector. Noted for its 'impressive advocacy and deep understanding', the team has successfully represented Chevron and its subsidiary, Texaco Petroleum Company, in an international arbitration against the Republic of Ecuador pertaining to its violation of the BIT; following the proceedings, which were led by 'outstanding lawyers' Doak Bishop and Edward Kehoe, the $9.5bn judgment rendered against Chevron was deemed unenforceable. 'Excellent' Caline Mouawad, Henry Burnett, and Houston-based Craig Miles represented Bear Creek Mining Corporation in an ICSID arbitration against the Republic of Peru brought under the Canada-Peru Free Trade Agreement. Other key contacts include global disputes head Reginald Smith and head of upstream oil and gas John Bowman from Houston. The team has been strengthened with two new additions from White & Case LLP: John Templeman joined as counsel in New York and Chip Rosenberg joined the Washington DC office; however, Houston-based Silvia Marchili left the firm to lead the international arbitration group at White & Case LLP.
