Members of Shearman & Sterling’s International Arbitration team have been recognized in the inaugural Legal 500 Arbitration Private Practice Powerlists 2023 for Mainland China and Hong Kong. The lists feature “elite arbitration practitioners” from across both jurisdictions.

Partner Emmanuel Jacomy (Beijing / Singapore) is featured in the Arbitration Powerlist for China. Emmanuel, described by market sources as "the best foreign lawyer in China" advises and represents companies, State-owned entities and governments in international commercial and investment treaty arbitrations under all major arbitration rules, with a focus on investment, oil & gas, energy and mining disputes, as well as disputes having a Chinese and African nexus.

Partner Edward Taylor and senior associate Kitty Zheng (Hong Kong) are featured in the Arbitration Powerlist for Hong Kong. Edward and Kitty regularly represent companies, States and State-owned entities in complex disputes—including commercial and investment treaty arbitrations—across Hong Kong, Mainland China and internationally with a particular focus on energy, technology, joint venture and private equity disputes.

These rankings follow recognition in the UK, France and the Middle East Legal 500 Arbitration Private Practice Powerlists, in which Alex Bevan (partner and International Arbitation Practice Group Leader) and partners Jennifer Younan and David Hume were also featured for their work in energy and construction disputes.
