With almost 40 years’ experience in complex adversarial proceedings, George spends 100 per cent of his time representing clients in international arbitrations and providing strategic advice for litigation in courts outside the US. He has broad experience in commercial and treaty arbitration and is recognised globally as a leading counsel for contract and investment treaty energy disputes, particularly in the natural gas and LNG industry.
George is co-author of “Beyond Price Reviews: Adjudicating Claims of Financial Hardship” in International Oil and Gas Arbitration (Juris 2015); and “Considerations in Natural Gas and LNG Price Review Claim Quantification” in the Journal of World Energy Law and Business (OUP, April 2015). He is the author of the chapter “The Arbitrator’s Role” in Gas Price Disputes (Globe Law and Business 2014).
George is a US representative to the ICC Commission on Arbitration and has recently been appointed as a member of the ICC task force on emergency arbitrator proceedings. He previously served as a member of the ICC Court of Arbitration’s Task Force on the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, and the ICC’s task force on amiable composition and ex aequo et bono principles in international arbitration.
George received his JD and an AB, magna cum laude, from Harvard University and has an MA and a BA from Cambridge University. He is a registered foreign lawyer in England and Wales, acts as an arbitrator and is a frequent commentator on arbitration-related topics.
