Ioana Knoll-Tudor specializes in international commercial and investment arbitration. She is acting both as counsel and arbitrator (sole and party-appointed).

She has represented and advised clients in numerous international and domestic arbitrations (both institutional and ad hoc), with a particular focus on the energy, construction, competition & distribution and post-M&A sectors. She also acts in post-arbitration proceedings (annulment and enforcement of arbitral awards) before French courts.

Ioana regularly seats as arbitrator (chair, co-arbitrator, sole arbitrator) before major arbitral institutions, both international (such as ICC, ICSID and VIAC) and regional (CICA-CCIR, CCIJ), including with States and State-owned parties. She is the first Romanian arbitrator appointed on an ICSID panel (ICSID Case No. ARB/19/30).

Ioana has an extensive knowledge of the CEE region, having dealt and worked with every Eastern European jurisdiction, and having spent 10 years in the Warsaw and Budapest offices of an international law firm.

Her book «The Fair and Equitable Treatment Standard in International Foreign Investment Law» published by Oxford University Press, is a reference in the field of international arbitration.

Ioana teaches and speaks regularly on international arbitration at conferences and seminars, and frequently publishes on topical issues of arbitration and international law.
