Biography

Domitille Baizeau joined LALIVE in 2004 and has been practising dispute resolution for 20 years, exclusively in international arbitration (commercial and investment) since 2001. She has acted in over sixty international disputes, as counsel and arbitrator (including presiding arbitrator), in administered arbitrations (ICC, LCIA, Swiss Rules, WIPO, SCC, AAA/ICDR) and ad hoc proceedings (including UNCITRAL), governed by various procedural and substantive laws, both common law and civil law, including English, American, Swiss, Swedish and French.

 

Her areas of specialization include joint venture, M&A, shareholders, sales, distribution and investment disputes in the energy (oil & gas, solar, mining), telecommunications, commodity trading, construction and pharmaceutical sectors.

 

Domitille Baizeau has been a member of the Arbitration Court of the Swiss Chambers' Arbitration Institution which administers arbitrations subject to the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration since 2010. She is also a member of the Board and the Executive Committee of ASA, the Swiss Arbitration Association (and former co-chair of ASA below 40), an officer of the European Users' Council of the LCIA (and former co-chair of YIAG), co-chair of the Terralex International Dispute Resolution Group and an immediate past member of the Executive Committee of the Swedish Arbitration Association (SAA). She is in addition a member of the IBA (Arbitration Committee) and an Associate Member of the ICC Institute of World Business Law. She is listed on the panel of arbitrators of the ICC New Zealand Arbitration Committee, the ICC French National Committee and the ICDR. She regularly speaks at conferences and publishes in international arbitration and was for several years a member of the Editorial Board of the ASA Bulletin.

 

Domitille Baizeau has been ranked for several years by Chambers (Global-wide, Europe-wide and Switzerland) for International Arbitration and by The International Who's Who of Commercial Arbitration. In 2011, she was selected as one of 45 "leading figures" in international arbitration below the age of 45, following a peer-review process conducted by Global Arbitration Law Review.

 

Before joining LALIVE, Domitille Baizeau practiced in litigation and arbitration in New Zealand with a leading business law firm (1996-1999) and in France with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Paris (2001-2004). She graduated from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand in 1995 (LL.B. First Class Honours) and also holds a Diploma in French law from the Université Paris II Assas-Panthéon.
