As part of the Brexit arrangements, the European Council has appointed an EU-UK arbitration panel to resolve disputes between the parties.

The Withdrawal Agreement Arbitration Panel consists of 25 members (five chairpersons, in addition to 10 ordinary members from both the EU and the UK side), as well as 17 reserve list candidates.

Sorainen partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution and Risk Management team Carri Ginter has been appointed to serve on the reserve list among other prominent arbitrators and academics. “Once again, we are punching above our weight,” says Ginter, referring to the extremely tough competition for such posts. Eminent experts seek to serve on high-level arbitration panels such as this one for the valuable contacts and experience they bring, which in turn translates into added value for clients.
