As co-leader of Alston & Bird’s international arbitration and dispute resolution team, Alex Yanos focuses on complex international disputes in court and before arbitral tribunals.
Alex’s arbitration practice includes commercial, financial, and treaty-based disputes, particularly in the energy and mining sectors and in Latin America. He obtained a finding of unlawful expropriation in one of the largest investment treaty cases ever filed before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) in an arbitration against Venezuela. In another decision against a sovereign state, the US Supreme Court reinstated the award of a UK multinational oil and gas company client against Argentina. He has also obtained results for clients in disputes involving governments around the world.
He has advocated for his clients before nearly every international arbitration tribunal, including the ICSID, International Chamber of Commerce, London Court of International Arbitration, American Arbitration Association, Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, Inter- American Commercial Arbitration Commission, International Court of Justice and Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.
Alex also has considerable experience representing clients in the securities, banking, antitrust and insurance industries facing multi-jurisdictional disputes. He is fluent in six languages.
