Remarks by Lisa Richman
Our fourth panel will hear the perspectives of the tribunal, and we have three very distinguished and experienced arbitrators here to give us those perspectives.
Immediately to my left is Jim Carter, who is Senior Counsel at WilmerHale in the firm’s international arbitration practice group. He has more than forty years of experience as arbitrator and counsel in more than a hundred arbitration cases involving joint ventures, international trade, and investment disputes. He has participated in numerous international arbitrations as both chair and co-arbitrator, and has represented European, U.S., Asian, and other multi-national companies in those arbitrations, as well, under leading institutional rules and in ad hoc arbitrations. His particular experience is in joint venture, investor state M&A, investment banking, other financial services, project finance, and energy.
Immediately next to him is the chair for this panel, Jackie Van Haersolte-van Hof. She has experience also as counsel, arbitrator, and also in mediations, in both international and in national arbitrations and court litigations involving sales and general contract law, post-M&A disputes, energy law, shipping and shipbuilding, commodities, also with injunctions and attachment proceedings, setting aside and enforcement proceedings under the ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL Rules, at ICSID, in the Royal Dutch Grain and Feed Trade Association, as well as ad hoc arbitrations. And finally, we have Brian Casey, who has also almost forty years of experience in commercial dispute resolution. He’s a former principal of Baker & McKenzie International, and a former Chair of that firm's North American Litigation Practice Group.
