Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Dr Anthony Sinclair qualified as a barrister and solicitor in New Zealand in 1999 and as an English solicitor in 2006. He specialises in international commercial arbitration, investment treaty arbitration and public international law. His work spans a range of industry sectors, with particular focus on the oil and gas, energy and mining, telecommunications, infrastructure and utilities sectors, especially in emerging markets, as counsel and arbitrator. His experience includes handling disputes under ICC, LCIA, ICSID and UNCITRAL arbitration rules arising out of concession agreements, licences, production sharing and operating agreements, joint ventures, EPC and other construction agreements, host government and inter-governmental agreements, management and service agreements, distributorships, finance agreements and post-M&A matters. Anthony also has extensive experience as counsel for both investors and states handling disputes under bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT), and in several ICSID annulment proceedings. He has advised states on the negotiation and drafting of treaties, headquarters agreements and intergovernmental agreements.

Anthony is co-author of the second edition of The ICSID Convention: A Commentary (CUP, 2009), and is widely published in the fields of international investment law and arbitration.  He has a PhD in law from the University of Cambridge. Anthony is the winner of OGEMID’s Article of the Year, 2010, and the Smit-Lowenfeld Prize awarded by the International Arbitration Club of New York for the best article (co-authored with Aloysius Llamzon) published in the field of international arbitration in 2015.

WWL says: Anthony Sinclair “combines a razor-sharp academic mind with a practitioner’s eye for detail”, and is highly commended for his “hardworking approach and great effort when preparing cases”.
