LALIVE partner Domitille Baizeau has won the 2018 GAR ART Award for the Best Prepared and Most Responsive Arbitrator for her work as arbitrator in the last 13 years in cases conducted under most of the major arbitration rules, including those of the ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, SCC and the Swiss Rules.
Domitille Baizeau has been practising dispute resolution for over 20 years, exclusively in international arbitration (commercial and investment) since 2001. She has acted in more than 70 international disputes, as counsel and arbitrator (including presiding arbitrator), in administered arbitrations and ad hoc proceedings, governed by various procedural and substantive laws, both common law and civil law, including English, Swiss, American, Swedish and French, and by international law. Her areas of specialization include joint venture, M&A, shareholders, sales, distribution and investment disputes in the energy (oil & gas, solar, mining), telecommunications, commodity trading, infrastructure projects and pharmaceutical sectors.
On receiving the award, Domitille Baizeau told GAR what she believes are the most important qualities of a good arbitrator: “good judgment, unfailing work commitment, intellectual honesty and the required curiosity to understand a case and have the ability – and courage – to decide”.
