Emmanuel Gaillard heads Shearman & Sterling’s 100-lawyer international arbitration practice.

He acts as counsel and arbitrator in commercial and investment treaty arbitrations. He is regarded as a leading authority in both those fields worldwide.

Those include the arbitrations brought by the majority shareholders of the former Yukos Oil Company against Russia, which led to a US$50 billion award in favour of the shareholders, the arbitration brought by the Dow Chemical Company against a Kuwaiti company in relation to a failed joint venture, which led to a US$2.47 billion award in favour of Dow, and numerous matters brought against the Arab Republic of Egypt and its national energy companies following the 2011 Egyptian Revolution.

A professor of law in France and a visiting professor of law at Yale Law School and Harvard Law School, he has written extensively on all aspects of arbitration law. His publications include a seminal treatise (Fouchard Gaillard Goldman On International Commercial Arbitration) (co-author), the first essay on the Legal Theory of International Arbitration, available in English, French, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and other languages, and the UNCITRAL Secretariat Guide on the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards (co-author), available in all UN languages.
