Linklaters continues its expansion in the field of international arbitration with the arrival of Christian Albanesi

Linklaters is pleased to announce the arrival of Christian Albanesi, Managing Counsel of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, to its international arbitration team. The firm thus takes a new step in its development, particularly with regard to its activities in arbitration in Latin America.   

Christian Albanesi held the position of Managing Counsel of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, which he had joined seven years ago. He previously held other positions in the Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American team of the ICC Court’s Secretariat. He is a member of the Paris and Buenos Aires Bars.

Christian Albanesi graduated from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and holds an LL.M in French law and international law from the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. He is also a former scholar of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation.

Prior to joining ICC, Christian Albanesi worked in Buenos Aires at the Argentinian law firm Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal and then at the Paris office of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

Linklaters benefits from a vast experience in the field of dispute resolution, notably in international arbitration in a wide range of sectors: corporate, mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, energy, mining and natural resources, telecommunications, defense, aerospace, construction, manufacturing, distribution, financial services, pharmaceuticals, and services contracts. 

Linklaters has one of the strongest international arbitration teams, strengthened in December 2013 with the arrival of Matthieu de Boisséson, Pierre Duprey and Roland Ziadé, along with a number of experienced associates.

With a unique international reach (Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Americas), the members of this team act as counsel and arbitrators in arbitral proceedings worldwide, under the rules of all of major arbitral institutions (e.g. ICC, LCIA, ICSID), as well as in ad hoc proceedings (e.g., UNCITRAL).
