Who's Who Legal Construction: Lawyers

Samuel Moss is trained in both civil and common law and specialises in international arbitration, both commercial and investor-state, with a particular emphasis on disputes in the construction and energy sectors. He has acted as counsel, sole arbitrator, and tribunal secretary in numerous international arbitrations conducted under the ICC Rules, the ICSID Convention, the Swiss Rules and the DIAC Rules, including several large disputes relating to construction and infrastructure projects around the world.

Recent engagements include acting as counsel for a Middle-Eastern State in several consolidated ICC arbitrations concerning a major transport infrastructure project with an amount in dispute of over US$170 million; acting for an Eastern European state-owned company against a southern European contractor in a US$65 million ICC arbitration concerning a large infrastructure project; and representing a major international engineering company in several arbitrations concerning power plant and refinery projects in Europe.

Samuel Moss also advises contractors and owners on non-contentious matters relating to construction and infrastructure projects, including the negotiation and drafting of construction contracts, and assists clients in mediation procedures.

Prior to joining Lalive, Samuel Moss was assistant legal counsel at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague (2006–2007) and served as a law clerk to a judge of the Quebec Court of Appeal (2005–2006). He holds a master’s degree in international law from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (2007–2009), and joint common and civil law degrees (BCL/LLB (Honours), with great distinction) from McGill University (2006), where he served as executive editor of the McGill Law Journal (2005–2006).

He speaks English, French and German.

WWL says: Samuel Moss stands out for his expertise in both contentious and non-contentious complex construction-related matters, with a focus on arbitration.
