Getting Real: A 'Video Podcast' Series: An Interview with Clara Brillembourg

Hosted by Foley Hoag partner Veronica Jennings to generate dialogue among and build community with women lawyers

These days, we are looking at this widespread remote working scenario as an opportunity to enhance business relationships by reexamining professional boundaries and relying on means such as video conferences and phone calls. This "video podcast" series consists of discussions with female and male attorneys about issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you find them interesting and helpful and we are grateful to all the lawyers who made time to talk with us.

Guest: Clara Brillembourg, Partner, Foley Hoag LLP

In today’s episode, Veronica gets real with Clara Brillembourg, a partner in Foley Hoag’s International Litigation and Arbitration Practice Group, where she represents sovereign states in international investment arbitration, in State-State treaty disputes, and before US courts. Clara discusses her practice in international litigation and arbitration and her journey there; her motivation in pursuing international law; her experience defending Uruguay in the arbitration brought by Philip Morris to stop its tobacco control laws; and what art and private law practice have in common.
