Daniel Schimmel

Partner
New York

I’ve served as arbitrator/counsel in more than 65 arbitrations and represent major European clients in U.S. litigation.

Daniel Schimmel leads the International Litigation & Arbitration practice of Foley Hoag’s New York office.

Daniel has served as Chair, Sole Arbitrator, Co-Arbitrator, Emergency Arbitrator, Appellate Arbitrator, and counsel in international arbitrations arising from a broad range of contracts and transactions. He has served as Chair and emergency arbitrator in disputes in excess of $350 million.  He has served as arbitrator in six expedited arbitrations.
 

He also represents clients, including major French and other European clients, in international commercial litigation in the United States and international corruption investigations. This includes the representation of the Republic of France, the French Ministère des Armées, and Direction Générale de l’Armement in a lawsuit in federal court. It also involves securing a unanimous jury verdict for French telecommunications company Orange SA in federal court in San Francisco. Daniel has also represented major groups, such as Air France, Laboratoires Pierre Fabre, Alcatel-Lucent, Caceis, and Credit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank in international disputes.

Daniel has been consistently ranked in Chambers and Partners or Chambers USA. According to Chambers, Daniel is "incredibly bright and hard-working," according to one source, who adds: "He anticipates twists and turns in advance so you can position yourself to avoid problems."

Daniel co-authored an e-book with Judge Antoine Garapon, Le Procès Civil en Version Originale, Cultures Judiciaires Comparées (France, Chine et Etats-Unis), published by LexisNexis, which received the award for best law book of the year 2015 from Cercle Montesquieu in France. He is also the author of numerous articles on American litigation and international arbitration published in Le Monde, Dalloz Avocats, le Code Monétaire et Financier, and the New York Law Journal.

Daniel is listed on the ICDR International Panel of Arbitrators, AAA’s Roster of Arbitrators, and CPR’s Panel of Distinguished Neutrals. He is a member of the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR, a Board member and former member of the Executive Committee of the New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC), a member of the International Commercial Disputes Committee and of the Arbitration Committee of the New York City Bar Association, a member of the International Arbitration Club of New York, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (F. CIArb), a member of Paris Place de Droit, and is listed on the Panel of Arbitrators of the Shanghai Arbitration Commission.

Daniel formerly represented Lawyers Without Borders at the U.N. and organized and participated in pro bono training programs for the prosecution staff of the International Criminal Court and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. He has lectured on U.S. civil procedure at the French national judge school (Ecole National de la Magistrature).

Daniel served as the first law clerk of Judge Jed S. Rakoff (Southern District of New York) and previously worked for the Chief Judge of the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Bobigny in France.
