Shearman & Sterling LLP¬†was recently instructed to act in a series of investment and commercial arbitrations for both new and long-established clients, including states and French and international corporations. The 50-lawyer practice remains highly active in high-profile oil and gas, construction and energy matters in relation with North Africa. It is also increasingly visible in cases involving Sub-Saharan Africa, notably on concession issues, and is representing Eastern European states in several matters. Finally, the practice is also dealing with disputes involving the European renewables market and is advising on several matters involving Chinese and Asian parties. Recent highlights include representing Egypt in two long‚Äźterm investment arbitrations relating to gas supply agreements dealing with the export of Egyptian gas to Israel, and Sonatrach in an ICC arbitration brought by Saipem regarding the construction of gas liquefaction facilities. The firm also successfully acted for Croatia in an ICSID arbitration with an Austrian party regarding a food products enterprise, and Lithuania in an ICSID arbitration initiated by Veolia Environnement relating to district heating and power generation. Algeria, Ukraine and Areva are clients.
