Mallory Silberman is a partner at Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer, and an internationally recognized advocate with more than a decade of experience litigating high-profile international arbitrations. In interviews with Who’s Who Legal, Ms. Silberman’s clients and peers have described her as “a clear future leader in the field of investor-state arbitration,” with a “creative mind,” an “unmatched” “knowledge of the jurisprudence,” and “oral advocacy skills [that] far outpace most of her peers.”
To date, Ms. Silberman has been counsel in 40 investment treaty cases, including more than 20 at ICSID (an arbitration arm of the World Bank). Across these cases, she has represented not only prominent international corporations, but also approximately 8% of the world’s countries—including Chile, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Hungary, the Kyrgyz Republic, Panama, the Philippines, the Slovak Republic, South Korea, and Turkey. These cases have involved everything from transportation concessions, telecoms licenses, intellectual property, and bank regulation, to mining, renewable energy, environmental permits, and taxation.
In 2019, Ms. Silberman was named one of the top five “under 40” international arbitration attorneys worldwide (Law360). Her work has also been recognized by Who’s Who Legal (Future Leader in International Arbitration, 2017–2021); Latinvex (Latin America’s Top 100 Female Attorneys, 2017–2020); The Legal 500 Latin America (Next Generation Lawyer in International Arbitration) (twice); Super Lawyers (Rising Star in International Law) (six times); and others.
