Senior Associate, Peter & Kim

Marion has a long-standing experience of handling high-stake, complex, arbitration proceedings. Over the past several years, she has acted as counsel, arbitrator or secretary of the arbitral tribunal in over 30 institutional and ad hoc proceedings, governed by a variety of procedural and substantive laws, including French, Swiss and Dutch laws. Her experience spans a number of industries and sectors, and has included disputes relating to international sales agreements and intellectual property matters.

Marion is a frequent speaker on issues related to commercial arbitration, as a regular panelist in workshops and seminars (organized by ICC YAF and Young ICCA in particular). She has spoken at and co-organized events about a range of topics, including the challenges and opportunities of becoming an arbitrator, the handling of cross-examinations in arbitral proceedings, the resolution of labor disputes by arbitration, and human rights in international contracts disputes. Passionate about art, Marion has recently moderated a workshop on the resolution of art law disputes by international arbitration (London, September 2019) and authored a study on « Contemporary Arbitration and Art Basel » (publication forthcoming, 2020). In January 2020, she was appointed to the original Arbitration pool of CAfA.

Marion qualified as an attorney-at-law in France in 2009, and is a member of the Paris Bar Association and the Geneva Bar Association. Prior to joining Peter & Kim, Marion worked at Lévy Kaufmann-Kohler in Geneva. She further gained experience at the Secretariat of the ICC Court of Arbitration and in the arbitration teams of magic circle firms in Paris, France.
