I specialize in international arbitration and as a member of the dispute resolution practice of Schoenherr, I have acted as counsel and arbitrator in over 25 commercial and investment disputes. I was instrumental in securing the firm's most impressive wins in investment arbitration, and have been lead counsel in several high-stakes and complex inter-national commercial arbitrations. I am qualified in both civil and common law jurisdictions.
Prior to joining Schoenherr in 2015, I advised on Austrian, European, and New York law as an associate in Vienna and New York City.
Additionally, I support various arbitration initiatives and launched my own in 2021: myArbitration - a video series and platform to promote diversity and equal access to international arbitration ( I regularly publish and speak on these initiatives and on other arbitration and ADR topics on various platforms.
