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

Lorraine de Germiny has been an associate at Lalive since 2014. She specialises in international arbitration, both commercial and investment treaty arbitration, and has particular experience in the areas of oil and gas, and construction. She has acted as counsel in a number of international arbitral proceedings, either ad hoc (including UNCITRAL) or administered (under the rules of the ICC and ICSID), governed by various procedural and substantive laws.

Ms de Germiny is a member of several professional associations (including ArbitralWomen, ICDR Y&I and LCIA YIAG) and serves as a member of the board of the CFA-40. She is regularly invited to speak on topics relating to international arbitration.

Before joining Lalive, Ms de Germiny practised international arbitration at King & Spalding in Paris (2009-2014) and at Dewey & LeBoeuf in Paris and New York (2006-2009). In addition, she completed secondments to the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre and to UNESCO in 2008 and 2012, respectively.

Ms de Germiny holds a licence with honours from the University of Rennes, a Juris Doctor (JD) cum laude from Tulane University Law School and an LLM from Columbia Law School where she was named a Harlan Fiske Stone scholar. She speaks English and French, and has a working knowledge of Spanish.

WWL says: Lorraine de Germiny is "highly organised and great with clients, and has experience across the spectrum of commercial, treaty and construction disputes".
