Dechert LLP’s Washington DC-based multilingual team is described by clients as being ‘tactically and strategically flexible and effective’. The department’s main focus lies in the investment treaty arbitration realm, although it also has significant capabilities in commercial arbitration as well. The team’s varied client portfolio spans sovereign states and state-owned enterprises, companies, and high-net-worth individuals. Notably, a team led by global arbitration group co-chair Arif Ali is also increasingly active in internet governance matters; of recent note is its work as counsel on the first-ever arbitration initiated against the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Other key figures in the team include French speaker Alexandre de Gramont and Érica Franzetti, both of whom have experience of advising clients in the energy, life sciences, financial services, and hospitality sectors.
