Our heritage


Pioneering the world of dispute resolution since the 1950s

Me Jean Flavien Lalive d’Epinay and Professor Pierre Lalive d’Epinay are both recognised as trailblazing pioneers who indelibly shaped the world of international arbitration and public international law. Both were extraordinary academics, counsel, arbitrators and linguists, leaders and original thinkers who established seminal principles in the international dispute resolution arena still being referred to today.

Their contribution and spirit continue to inform the way LALIVE works today, with relentless commitment to excellence in our work, to finding innovative solutions for our clients and setting standards in the field.
