“Hagit is highly regarded first-chair counsel in the international arbitration bar and adds to our U.S.- based bench at a time when more parties in life sciences, energy, infrastructure and tech are turning to arbitration as the preferred cross-border dispute resolution mechanism,” said Charles Adams, Geneva-based head of our international arbitration practice.
Named a Distinguished Leader by The New York Law Journal in 2021 for securing successful results in bet-the-company disputes for major clients, including a European pharmaceutical company, a Philippines-based gaming client and a Japanese nuclear power operator, Hagit represents largescale life sciences, energy and infrastructure businesses. She is recognized as a leading practitioner by Chambers, Global Arbitration Review, and Legal 500 where clients commend her as “a force to be reckoned with” who “thinks ten steps ahead” and “combines exceptional command of forensic detail, with first-class presentation and cross-examination skills.” Hagit also serves on the Commission of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, as a Director of the New York International Arbitration Center, and on the Council of the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution.
“Orrick, with its strength in global energy and infrastructure and the life sciences talent the firm has recently attracted, presents a very exciting platform on which to grow my practice. I am looking forward to collaborating closely with this global team,” Hagit said.
Global Arbitration Review has ranked Orrick in its top 30 international arbitration practices for the past seven years.
