Pinsent Masons hires international arbitration partner in Paris

17 Apr 2023 | 11:26 am | 1 min. read

Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has hired partner Gaëlle Filhol to join the firm’s international arbitration practice.

Gaëlle is a highly experienced international arbitration lawyer, and her practice focuses on complex, high value disputes in the energy, infrastructure and defence sectors. She joins as a partner in the Paris office and will be working together with existing international arbitration partner Florian Quintard.

Gaëlle will be joined by three members of her team, and her arrival reflects the significant growth of the firm's arbitration practice in Paris.

Gaëlle joins from firm Betto Perben where she led on arbitrations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. She also sits as an arbitrator and is one of the co-founders of MUTE OFF Thursdays – an initiative designed to champion and connect female practitioners in international arbitration.

Jason Hambury, global co-head of Pinsent Masons’ International Arbitration practice said: “Gaëlle skillset is an ideal fit with our leading practice. Clients will benefit from her considerable experience advising on dispute advisory boards and complex commercial arbitrations across a number of industries including aviation/aeronautics, defence, oil & gas, nuclear, construction and heavy industry. We are delighted to welcome her as we continue to enhance our practice in key arbitration markets.”

Gaëlle has been recognised in Legal500 and Who’s Who Legal as being a leading practitioner in international arbitration and a global elite thought leader.

Gaëlle Filhol said: “Pinsent Masons is known for its unique value-driven client service and its strong focus on purpose, diversity and inclusion, and innovation. I am very proud to be joining the partnership, especially at a time when the firm is implementing a global expansion strategy in international arbitration. I am grateful to be leading the international arbitration practice in Paris with my dear friend Florian Quintard, with whom we share a common vision for the years to come.”
