Andrei’s practice focuses on investor-state and international commercial arbitration and related litigation.
Andrei brings almost 30 years of experience in complex, high-value cases arising out of foreign investment, sovereign and corporate finance, M&A/joint ventures, and major projects across a variety of sectors including energy, metals and mining, telecoms, and real estate development.
He has advised and represented clients in arbitrations under ICSID, ICSID Additional Facility, ICC, SCC, LCIA, and UNCITRAL rules, as well as in national courts in relation to international arbitration matters.
He acts largely for sovereign states, central banks, large corporates, and ultra-high-net-worth individuals.
Chambers has described him as “very strategic,” stating, “he deftly handles disputes under ICSID and UNCITRAL rules” and “fights for his client and is also a very fair opponent.” Legal 500 U.K. has called him as a “top notch professional.” He generated and led a high-profile case that the Global Arbitration Review (GAR) ranked as one of the 10 most important decisions globally for that year and AmLaw Arbitration Scorecard as one of the largest contract arbitrations at the time.
