Global Arbitration Review Covers Curtis promotions

Global Arbitration Review (GAR) has covered the promotions of Susan Maples to partner in New York, and new counsels in Kazakhstan.

Tibisay Morgandi, a professor at Queen Mary University School of Law who has collaborated with Maples on several previous academic projects, says her expertise in the energy sector is “truly remarkable” and that she has made “significant contributions to the development of the energy sector through her thought leadership”. She tells GAR that as a “prolific author and speaker”, Maples has tackled issues such as the role of arbitration in energy disputes, climate change and sustainable development, and the challenges and opportunities presented by emerging technologies. “Her insights have not only shaped the discourse within the arbitration community but have also influenced policy and decision-making at the national and international levels.”

Curtis has also promoted Kopzhan Musrepov, Yerzhan Mukhitdinov, Meruyert Shaimerdinova and Bibigul Nugumova to counsel in its offices in Kazakhstan. George Kahale III commented: they are “well-deserved” and “reflect our commitment to maintaining our leadership position in international arbitration as well as our commitment to our Kazakhstan practice"
