17/09/2021

Arendt is pleased to announce that the Paris-based arbitration practitioner Paschalis Paschalidis has joined its Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice as of Counsel with a view to boost Arendt & Medernach’s expertise in international dispute resolution and to further develop the practice of international arbitration in Luxembourg.

A dual Luxembourg and Greek national, Paschalis’ practice focuses on international commercial and investment treaty arbitration as well as EU litigation. He acts as counsel in several commercial and investment treaty arbitrations under a variety of arbitral rules. He also acts as arbitrator and regularly appears before the courts of EU Member States and the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Before joining Arendt & Medernach, Paschalis served as référendaire for Advocate General Melchior Wathelet at the Court of Justice of the European Union, senior associate at the international arbitration and public international law practices of Shearman & Sterling and most recently as counsel at the newly-established dispute resolution firm “Gaillard Banifatemi Shelbaya Disputes”. As of September 2021, Paschalis is also Associate Professor of EU law at the University Lyon III “Jean Moulin”.

Arendt & Medernach is delighted to welcome Paschalis Paschalidis on-board its Dispute Resolution team. His wide-ranging experience and in-depth understanding of international arbitration is a great asset for our firm which is a pioneer in dispute resolution in Luxembourg and for its clients. Paschalis is joining our firm at an opportune moment when Luxembourg seeks to boost international arbitration through the reform and modernisation of its arbitration law. He will significantly strengthen our efforts to promote Luxembourg as a place to practice arbitration.” remarked Jean-Marc Ueberecken, Managing Partner at Arendt & Medernach.

I am delighted that Arendt & Medernach invited me to join its stellar legal team with a view to further develop the nascent practice of international arbitration in the country. With its rich social and cultural fabric, Luxembourg has all the ingredients that are necessary for international arbitration to grow and flourish. I look forward to taking up this challenge with my new colleagues and to contributing to Arendt & Medernach’s many successes.” added Paschalis Paschalidis.
