May 22, 2017

Foley Hoag LLP has announced that associate Christina Beharry has been promoted to Counsel, effective May 1, 2017.

Beharry's practice focuses on public international law disputes, investor-State and commercial arbitration, and trade and investment policy. She represents international clients in disputes involving different industries and provides advice on various international matters, including damages, investment treaty-based causes of actions, maritime delimitations, treaty interpretation, human rights, and international environmental law. Beharry was a member of the legal teams that successfully defended firm clients’ right to regulate in the interest of public health in Philip Morris v. Uruguay and Pac Rim v. El Salvador, which were both resolved in our clients’ favor before tribunals administered by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).

"Christina is an integral part of the firm's International Litigation and Arbitration Department and a strong advocate for our clients’ interests," said Foley Hoag Co-Managing Partner Adam Kahn.

Beharry was recently named Co-Chair of the Minorities in International Law Interest Group (MILIG), a sub-group of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) created to promote and enhance the careers of minorities in the field of international law.
