Squire Patton Boggs is pleased to announce that partner Stephen Anway has been named Co-Chair of the firm’s International Dispute Resolution (IDR) Practice group alongside partner George von Mehren, who founded the practice nearly 20 years ago. The appointment goes into effect immediately and will see Anway continue to serve as a member of the firm’s Global Board.
Commenting on Anway’s appointment, Mr. von Mehren said, “Stephen has spent his entire career with the firm and has been key to the growth of our practice. He is an excellent lawyer and a very good friend. I look forward to working with him as we continue the success and expansion of our IDR team.”
Squire Patton Boggs’ IDR Practice is ranked 23rd in Global Arbitration Review’s (GAR) 2018 ranking of the top 30 international arbitration firms in the world. The team consists of over 100 practitioners across more than 20 countries with experience practicing before virtually every major international dispute body in the world.
Anway has represented the winning party in many of the largest international arbitrations over the past 15 years. He has worked in more than 25 countries and has represented clients – including more than 10 different sovereign nations – in some 100 international arbitration proceedings, including arbitrations brought under more than 10 different investment treaties, free trade agreements and the Energy Charter Treaty.
In addition to his practice, Anway is an Adjunct Professor of Law at two of the leading law schools in the US, where he teaches a doctrinal course on international arbitration. In 2019, he will teach an international arbitration course at Southwest University of Political Science and Law in Chongqing, China.
