Il a participé en qualité de conseil ou d’arbitre à plus de 70 arbitrages internationaux, tant dans des procédures ad hoc (règlement de la CNUDCI) que sous l’égide de diverses institutions (CCI, CIRDI, Chambres suisses, LCIA, DIAC, SCC, DIS, AAA/ICDR) et soumis à divers droits de procédure et de fond, dont les droits suisse, allemand, anglais, français, turc et de New York.

Me Knoll conseille également les clients de l’Étude en matière d’arbitrage, notamment sur la rédaction de clauses d’arbitrage, les recours contre les sentences arbitrales ainsi que leur reconnaissance et leur exécution. En outre, il conseille les gouvernements en matière de négociation de traités d’investissement, aussi bien que les investisseurs sur la structuration de leurs investissements afin de leur garantir une protection efficace.
