Mohamed Shelbaya Appointed to the LCIA Court

Partner Mohamed Shelbaya (Paris-International Arbitration) was recently elected to the LCIA Court by its Board of Directors.

The LCIA Court consists of up to 35 members, plus representatives of associated institutions, and former Presidents, selected to provide and maintain a balance of leading practitioners in commercial arbitration, from the major trading areas of the world. The LCIA Court is the final authority for the proper application of the LCIA rules. Its principal functions are appointing tribunals, determining challenges to arbitrators, and controlling costs.

Mohamed has been praised in both Chambers Global and Who’s Who Legal as “one of the greatest arbitration minds of his generation.” Trained in French, English and Egyptian law at Panthéon-Sorbonne University, Oxford University and Cairo University, he has represented parties in more than 50 commercial and investment treaty matters, with a particular focus on arbitrations in the oil and gas sector and/or arbitrations involving interest in the Middle East.
