Claire Pauly practices in the areas of international arbitration and complex disputes. She advises and represents companies and state entities operating in various industries, with a particular emphasis on energy, distribution (particularly the automotive, pharmaceutical, and wine sectors), aeronautics, and infrastructure (particularly telecoms), before domestic courts and international arbitral tribunals (ICC, ICSID, LCIA, and ad hoc under the UNCITRAL Rules). She also has considerable experience in post-M&A disputes, assists clients in drafting contracts and in mediation proceedings, and acts as secretary to arbitral tribunals.
Prior to joining Jones Day in 2018, Claire represented: a Japanese investor in an ICSID arbitration brought against Spain under the Energy Charter Treaty, following Spain's amendments to the feed-in-tariffs applicable to renewable energy; a Belgian company and its French parent company in a complex dispute before an ICC Arbitral Tribunal and the Italian domestic courts relating to the termination of distribution agreements with a distributor of pharmaceutical products in Italy; and several European energy companies in gas-pricing disputes under long-term contracts.
Claire currently teaches arbitration and litigation strategy courses at the University of Paris II-Panthéon Assas, University of Paris-Saclay, and the Center of Mediation and Aritration (CMAP).
