His current and recent sovereign clients include the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Hungary, the Kyrgyz Republic and the Slovak Republic. Mr Evseev, a member of the ICSID panel of arbitrators, has played a leading role in many of Arnold & Porter’s victories in ICSID disputes under the Energy Charter Treaty and bilateral investment treaties over the past decade. In total, he has over 14 years of experience at premier arbitration practices in Washington, Geneva and London, and his areas of focus include energy, construction, telecommunications, banking, mining, joint venture and state-to-state disputes. He is a frequent speaker at arbitration-related conferences around the world and has authored numerous arbitration-related articles in leading publications.

Mr Evseev also acts as an arbitrator in disputes administered by leading international arbitration institutions including the SCC, ICC and LCIA. Chambers Global 2012 identified him as a “go-to arbitrator” for Russia-related disputes. Since 2015, Mr Evseev has also served as a member of the SCC Board, which is responsible for deciding certain matters under the SCC Rules, including decisions regarding prima facie jurisdiction, appointment of arbitrators, challenge to arbitrators and the costs of the arbitration.

Mr Evseev graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he served as publishing editor of the Harvard Law Review. He is Russian/English bilingual, fluent in Spanish and highly proficient in French.

WWL says: Dmitri Evseev is "one of those rare lawyers who can look at a case, understand its strengths and weaknesses and really focus and hone in on that; a great drafter and a brilliant mind. He knows the law inside out."
