Juliya is a UK-qualified Partner resident in the NY office. Her practice focuses on international arbitration and cross-border disputes.

In arbitration, she has represented clients under the LCIA, ICC, UNCITRAL SCC, Swiss Chamber and ICSID rules. These cases often concern complex jurisdictions (CIS and Africa) complex industries (extractives and energy), and complex claims (billion-dollar corporate shakedowns). She has done a number of court-based applications regarding arbitration, including injunctions, set-aside claims, and enforcement proceedings.

Juliya frequently provides strategic advice to support legal claims in common law jurisdictions, several of which have resulted in claims before the Privy Council. These claims have ranged from advising on judicial review proceedings, to making submissions for consular assistance concerning individuals charged abroad.

Juliya is active in the field of business and human rights and is a ranked individual in Chambers and Partners, (2019).
