Claire Habibi's practice focuses on corporate and commercial litigation and international arbitration. She advises French and international clients and assists them in prelitigation, litigation and arbitration proceedings, expert proceedings, and means of enforcement in connection with, inter alia, construction and engineering projects, investment disputes, industrial risks, and liability issues.

Her recent representations include assisting a multinational oil and gas company before the French commercial court in connection with the enforcement of an ICC arbitral award against an African state amounting to approximately one billion euros; assisting and representing a foreign company, in the context of the enforcement of an arbitral award rendered against a foreign state, before French courts and in mediation and arbitration proceedings under the ICC rules; representing a Luxembourg investor against a foreign state in an arbitration under the ICSID rules; representing a prominent businessman in an arbitration under the OHADA rules with respect to a contractual dispute; and representing a leading Japanese pharmaceutical company in claims against several generic manufacturers involving the launch of products in France.
