BonelliErede announces an important arbitration presence in its Rome office
31 October 2018

As of October 1st, partner Andrea Carlevaris moved to the firm’s Rome office to consolidate the activities of the International Arbitration Focus Team in a location where BonelliErede has developed numerous clients in the practice.
Andrea Carlevaris returned to BonelliErede in July 2017, having served as a partner from 2009 to 2012. In 2012 he was appointed Secretary General of the International Arbitration Court of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in Paris, one of the world’s most important arbitral institutions. After an initial period where he worked from the Paris office of our “best friend” Bredin Prat and our Milan office, he has now returned to Rome as his primary residence. Carlevaris will still maintain a regular presence in Paris, in view of his strong connections to the Paris arbitration community.
The International Arbitration Focus Team consists of more than 20 practitioners, who have substantial experience in both commercial and investor-State arbitration across many industry sectors. The Focus Team Leader, Laurence Shore, commented that Andrea’s transfer to Rome “will assist in building the firm’s international arbitration practice in a key office, particularly as our arbitration presence in the Middle East and North Africa continues to grow.”
