Squire Patton Boggs has promoted Czech dispute resolution specialists Eveli Lume and Maria Polakova to the firm's partnership.

Lume’s practice covers international dispute resolution, including investor-state and commercial international arbitration. She is experienced in international arbitration under the rules of the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes, International Chamber of Commerce, and United Nations Commission on International Trade Law Rules, as well as the rules of the German Institution of Arbitration. According to Squire Patton Boggs, she "provides assistance in commercial law matters, contract drafting, and negotiation in contentious matters," and "she also has experience in corporate law and cross-border M&A transactions."

Before joining Squire Patton Boggs in 2011, Lume worked at Hammonds LLP as a Research Associate. She also worked at the Chancellor of Justice of Estonia, the Boetticher Hasse Lohmann Law Firm, and the United Nations Association of Estonia. She graduated from the University of Tartu in Estonia.

Polakova's primary practice focus is investor-state and commercial international and domestic litigation cases. Her experience includes drafting substantive and procedural submissions in arbitration proceedings under United Nations Commission on International Trade Law and International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes rules, and work on assessments of prospective claims. She joined Squire Patton Boggs in 2010.
