Biography • Arbitration

Emmanuel Gaillard heads Shearman & Sterling’s 100-laywer international arbitration practice.

He has advised and represented companies, states and state-owned entities in hundreds of international arbitrations. He is regarded as a leading authority in the fields of both commercial and investment treaty arbitration. He also acts as arbitrator and expert witness.

Over the course of his career, Emmanuel Gaillard has acted on many of the largest international disputes submitted to arbitration. In addition to the US$50 billion award secured for the majority shareholders of the former Yukos Oil Company, he acted on the ICC arbitration brought by the Dow Chemical Company against Petrochemical Industries Company of Kuwait, which led to a US$2.47 billion award in favour of Dow, previously distinguished as the largest arbitral award rendered in the history of international arbitration.

A professor of law at Sciences Po Law School and a visiting professor of law at Yale Law School, Emmanuel Gaillard has written extensively on all aspects of arbitration law. Co-author of a leading treatise in the field (Fouchard Gaillard Goldman On International Commercial Arbitration), he also authored the first published essay on the legal theory of international arbitration. The volume, originally published in French (Aspects Philosophiques du droit de l’arbitrage international), was subsequently translated into English (Legal Theory of International Arbitration), Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, Hungarian and Portuguese.

Emmanuel Gaillard is a member of the ICSID panel of arbitrators, appointed by France. He chairs the International Arbitration Institute (IAI) and was the first president and one of the co-founders of the International Academy for Arbitration Law.
