Prof. Susan Franck Presents at Paris Law Firms

Washington and Lee law professor Susan Franck gave two internal presentations recently to global law firms in Paris. The title of Prof. Franck’s talk at both firms was  “The Role of the International Legal Profession in Investment Treaty Arbitration.”

She first spoke at Freshfields Paris, which has one of the most sophisticated public international law litigation and international arbitration practices in the world. She has been invited to give this talk to their Washington, D.C. based arbitration team as well.

Next, she spoke at Shearman Sterling Paris and via video link to their London office. Shearman Sterling also has an incredibly sophisticated practice that is among the best in the world in international arbitration. Prof. Franck says that this practice for the firm has been especially interesting recently because they are suing Russia in connection with the Yukos Oil debacle, where the Russian Federation illegally expropriated investments in the oil company. In the case, the claimants are seeking $100 Billion in compensation, the largest award in the history of international arbitration.
