Carine Dupeyron is a partner at Darrois Villey Maillot Brochier, a leading French law firm, where she co-heads the international arbitration practice. Before joining the firm in January 2017, she practised in Singapore, New York and Paris within international and independent firms.
Carine is also active before French courts in enforcement and annulment proceedings in connection with international awards, but not only: Carine represents French or foreign clients in complex domestic litigation, often involving private or public international law questions.
Carine has a dual business and legal background, enabling her to grasp strategic, financial and legal questions at stake in the arbitration cases entrusted to her, as counsel or as arbitrator. These cases often concern post-acquisitions and shareholders’ disputes, or the performance of major projects abroad. She has experience in proceedings governed by the rules of the major arbitration institutions, such as the ICC, the LCIA, the AAA-ICDR, the SCC, ICSID and in ad hoc/UNCITRAL proceedings.
Carine has recognised expertise in certain industrial sectors, in particular telecom, defence, waste management, pharmaceuticals and energy (mining, and oil and gas).
Carine regularly acts as chair, sole arbitrator or co-arbitrator, in proceedings conducted in French, English and Spanish.
She is a member of the International Court of Arbitration of the ICC and participates in professional organisations in relation to her arbitration practice (the French Arbitration Committee, the Spanish Arbitration Club, the French branch of the International Law Association, ArbitralWomen, etc).
She has teaching engagements at Sciences Po Paris and Paris V-Descartes University and she regularly contributes articles on arbitration to legal publications.
