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

Emilio's practice focuses primarily on investor-state and construction arbitration. At present, Emilio is acting as counsel in several high-profile investment cases in the energy sector under the Energy Charter Treaty and various intra-EU BITs. Recently, Emilio also successfully represented Italian clients against African state entities in construction disputes concerning contracts financed by the European Development Fund. Emilio regularly acts as administrative secretary to arbitral tribunals in both investment and commercial cases.

His areas of special expertise include the application of the CISG and the analysis of complex issues of quantum.

Emilio graduated summa cum laude in 2011 from the University of Milan School of Law; his dissertation, “The Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards in International Commercial Arbitration” was awarded the first prize at the 2013 edition of the Eugenio Minoli Prize of the Italian Arbitration Association. In 2013 Emilio earned his LLM in international business regulation litigation and arbitration from NYU School of Law, where he was a graduate-editor of the NYU Journal of Law & Business and served as research assistant to Professor Franco Ferrari.

Emilio is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Milan where he is conducting research on security for costs in international arbitration, and also acts as a teaching assistant at the Catholic University of Milan.

A dual-qualified attorney (Italy and New York), Emilio speaks fluent English and Spanish.

WWL says: Emilio Bettoni impresses his clients who state, "He was attentive to the study of matters of fact and was ready to give answers consistent with the needs, sometimes urgent, of a multinational company."
