Milena has been handling arbitrations at Clyde & Co across a range of sectors and geographies, for more than 15 years. She has represented a wide range of clients including major integrated trading companies and their shipping arms, national oil companies and governments.
Most recently Milena has been running a large multi jurisdictional team handling a variety of claims in the energy, transportation and telecoms sectors. Milena has developed a particular expertise in relation to all stages of production sharing agreements used in oil and gas.
Milena has handled many cases under the rules of the leading international arbitration institutions (including ICSID, ICDR, ICC, LCIA and many of the leading trade institutions) and has particular experience representing clients in the Middle East, where she has spent a considerable amount of time in recent years. She understands the cultural background to the cases she handles and is not afraid to use innovative solutions to get the right result for the client.
Milena takes a commercial approach to her cases, but will drive them hard to a final hearing, if that is in the interests of the client.
