Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Before transferring to the Bar and joining One Essex Court in June 2006, Andrew had been a partner at Lovells for 24 years, most recently as the head of the firm's international arbitration practice. He served as senior partner of the Hong Kong office from 1994 to 1998.

He is regularly appointed as an arbitrator in international arbitrations, including LCIA, ICC and UNCITRAL arbitrations, as sole arbitrator, chairman and as a party appointee.

In more than 40 years of legal practice, he has dealt with a wide range of commercial disputes, including those arising from share acquisition agreements, joint ventures, the financial services and banking sector, construction contracts, sale of goods, the oil industry, defence contracts, insurance and technology disputes.

He was one of the UK members of the ICC Court of Arbitration from 2006 to 2012 and a member of the drafting subcommittee of the ICC task force, which revised the ICC Rules of Arbitration.

He is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and a member of the LCIA. He is on the panel of arbitrators of the ICDR, HKIAC and CIETAC.

He is a past chair of the IBA arbitration subcommittee on the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards.

His standing in international arbitration has been recognised by the leading legal directories: he was ranked in the top tier of leading arbitrators at the Bar by The Legal 500 in 2015 and was runner-up in the 2015 GAR best prepared/most responsive arbitrator award.

WWL says: Andrew Foyle draws praise from international sources who applaud his "attentiveness to detail" as one of his key strengths.
