Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Future Leaders - Non-partners

Timothy (Tim) Foden is of counsel in Quinn Emanuel’s London office, joining the firm in 2013. His practice focuses on investor-treaty and high-value commercial arbitration. Tim has worked across a variety of industry sectors, but has focused in recent years on mining and industrial technology licensing. He has acted in proceedings under the ICSID, ICC, UNCITRAL, LCIA and ICDR arbitration rules.

He has represented dozens of investors in bringing claims against governments under various bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. Tim helped bring the first-ever claim by an Indian claimant in an ICSID arbitration and was instrumental in bringing the first renewable energy claims against Spain under the ECT.

Timothy also has extensive commercial arbitration experience. He has represented, inter alia, multiple global mining corporations, an international chemical engineering firm, drilling rig operators, a leading international hospitality management company and a major aluminum smelter.  In recent years, his geographical focus has been on Southern Africa and the Indian subcontinent.     

Timothy also has extensive experience in the enforcement of commercial and ICSID arbitration awards in the courts of the United States, the United Kingdom and Belize. 

Timothy served for two years as co-chair of Young ICCA, and was a deputy editor of the European International Arbitration Review for five years. At Young ICCA, Tim created the organisation’s popular “practical skills training workshops” – designed to teach the practical skills young arbitration practitioners will need to do the job, but do not necessarily learn as part of their legal education. He speaks regularly on international arbitration matters around the world.

WWL says: Timothy Foden is "the real deal" and is praised by market sources as "a great advocate and a formidable and respectful adversary".
