Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Future Leaders - Partners

Konstantin Christie is partner at Peter & Partners International SA, a Swiss law firm specialising in international commercial and investment arbitration, as well as related court proceedings and ADR.

For the past 10 years, his practice focused on international commercial and investment arbitration, as well as disputes under public international law. Konstantin has acted in numerous arbitration proceedings, both ad hoc (UNCITRAL) and under the rules of various institutions (including ICC, LCIA, ICSID, SCC, SCAI, SIAC and CAS).

As a native Russian speaker, Konstantin’s practice often involves cases from East Europe, Russia and the former CIS region, governed by Swiss and foreign laws (notable cases included application of French, Italian, New York, Iraqi, Korean, Czech, Bulgarian, Ukrainian and BVI law). Practical experience includes matters stemming from the oil, gas, mining and electricity sectors, as well as heavy industry and construction. Konstantin also works with private clients, especially in relation to disputes connected to JVs, post-M&A valuations and shareholder rights.

Recent representative matters as counsel involved ICC and SCAI arbitrations stemming from distribution and long-term energy supply agreements in the MENA and Asian regions, and required complex expert analysis on industry pricing trends, as well as business valuations.

In addition to Russian and English, Konstantin works in French. Konstantin was admitted to the bars of New York and Massachusetts in 2007, and trained in Geneva and Paris before starting with Python & Peter in 2008. He has a law degree (JD) from University of Suffolk and a Bachelor of Science (criminal justice) degree from Northeastern University in Boston.

WWL says: Konstantin Christie boasts outstanding expertise in commercial and investment disputes and is held in particularly high esteem for his work in the energy sector.
