Susanne Schwalb primarily advises and represents clients in international arbitration proceedings. She has a focus on international commercial arbitration and the protection of foreign investments where she advises both on the structuring of investments and in contentious proceedings. Susanne also has extensive practical experience in third-party funding.

In commercial arbitration, Susanne particularly represents clients in shareholder and post-M&A disputes as well as in disputes concerning failed (large-scale) projects. When it comes to the protection of foreign investments, Susanne provides advice on the planning and implementation of investments as well as during the investment period. She also represents clients in investor-State arbitration proceedings and related domestic court proceedings. Susanne has many years of experience acting as party representative and as secretary/assistant to the arbitral tribunal in a large number of commercial arbitrations, including under the ICC, DIS, Swiss, LCIA, HKIAC and JCAA Rules as well as in more than 15 investor-State arbitrations under the ICSID Convention, UNCITRAL and SCC Rules. Susanne also regularly acts as arbitrator.

In addition, Susanne has negotiated comprehensive third-party funding agreements for several domestic as well as international arbitration proceedings and can therefore draw on extensive practical experience in the evaluation of the commercial and legal funding terms as well as the day-to-day handling of funded arbitration and court proceedings.

Susanne joined CMS in 2014 and became partner in 2022.
