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

Dr Emilio Bettoni is a senior associate at ArbLit and his practice focuses on investor-state and commercial arbitration. At present, Emilio is acting as counsel in high-profile investment cases in the energy sector under the Energy Charter Treaty and various intra-EU BITs. Recently, he also assisted a client in a pre-arbitration M&A dispute in the real estate sector and several clients in construction disputes, including before dispute boards, emergency arbitrators and arbitral tribunals.

Emilio’s areas of special expertise include the application of the CISG and the analysis of complex issues of quantum.

In addition to his counsel work, Emilio regularly acts as secretary to arbitral tribunals in both commercial and investment cases (including in ICSID arbitral and annulment proceedings).

Emilio graduated summa cum laude in 2011 from the University of Milan school of law and his dissertation was awarded the first prize at the 2013 Eugenio Minoli Prize of the Italian Arbitration Association. Emilio holds an LLM from NYU (2013), where he was graduate-editor of the NYU Journal of Law & Business and served as research assistant to Professor Franco Ferrari. He also earned a PhD from the University of Milan (2018) with a dissertation on security for costs in international commercial arbitration. During his doctoral studies, Emilio also acted as research assistant to Professor Jan Kleinheisterkamp at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

From September 2016 until June 2017 Emilio worked closely with Fountain Court Chambers on a series of substantial investment treaty arbitrations, working primarily from Fountain Court’s offices in London.

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

WWL says: Emilio Bettoni is “an excellent academic lawyer” who is recognised for his “impressive understanding of the key details of a case”.
