1 minute read

Congratulations to partner Vanessa Liborio Garrido de Sousa on being appointed to the Swiss Arbitration Centre’s Arbitration Court. This week’s appointment of Vanessa and two other women lawyers for the first time brings gender parity to the 27-member arbitration court.

Vanessa, a member of Orrick’s international arbitration practice in Geneva, co-leads our Geneva office.

Xavier Favre-Bulle, president of the Swiss arbitration court, told Global Arbitration Review that the new appointments “send a strong message in promoting a high number of female practitioners this year so as to reach gender parity at the court level.”
