Former Jeantet Global Partner Ioana Knoll-Tudor has joined Addleshaw Goddard as a Partner in its Paris office to develop its International Arbitration team.
Knoll-Tudor has over 15 years of experience with arbitral practice and procedure, both in commercial and investment arbitration. Before moving to Addleshaw Goddard, she spent eight years with Jeantet, starting as a Local Partner in Budapest in 2015 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on November 3, 2015). She worked out of both Budapest and Paris starting in 2017 (as reported on September 20, 2017) and made Global Partner with Jeantet in 2020 (as reported on September 2, 2020). Before that, she spent over eight years with Gide, starting as an Associate in Warsaw in 2007 and moving as a Senior Associate to Budapest in 2012.
"Ioana brings impressive international experience – whether in France, Spain, Central and Eastern Europe, or further afield – to better serve existing and future clients," Addleshaw Goddard Co-Head of International Arbitration Simon Kamstra said. "There are many synergies between Ioana's practice and our ambitions to broaden our capabilities to support clients wherever they might need us, and we are delighted to welcome Ioana to our rapidly growing team in Paris."
"Addleshaw Goddard’s Paris office is quickly expanding and taking part in this thrilling adventure with partners who are keen to work together is a particularly stimulating challenge," Knoll-Tudor commented. "For our clients, the firm’s international platform also means that we are now represented in all the major arbitration centers around the world, such as London, Singapore, Paris, and Dubai, which is growing rapidly. It also gives us the opportunity to tap into new markets such as Latin America and Africa."
