London, July 20, 2020 — Curtis is pleased to announce that Milo Molfa joins Curtis London as a partner effective July 17, 2020. An experienced advocate and international arbitration attorney, Mr. Molfa’s practice focuses on complex, high-profile international commercial and investment treaty arbitration and transnational litigation matters.

Dual-qualified in England & Wales and Italy, Mr. Molfa has appeared before arbitral tribunals in the world’s most frequently selected arbitral seats under the rules of the leading institutional and ad hoc arbitration regimes. He also regularly advises and represents clients in proceedings ancillary to arbitration before the English and the Italian courts.

Mr. Molfa has acted on disputes arising out of M&A, joint venture and shareholders’ agreements, technology transfer agreements, licensing and distribution agreements, media rights agreements, EPC contracts, and long-term supply agreements governed by the substantive laws of many common and civil law jurisdictions. His sector experience spans aerospace, automotive, aviation, energy, media and advertising, metals and mining, and oil and gas.

Mr. Molfa is a member of the Arbitration and ADR Committee of ICC UK and was recently appointed to the ICC Commission’s Task Force on ADR and Arbitration. He is the author and the co-author of two treatises and several other publications and regularly lectures and speaks at conferences on international arbitration matters.

He holds an LL.M. (distinction) from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a J.D. (magna cum laude) from the Università degli Studi di Milano.

Mr. Molfa is recognized as a Future Leader by Who’s Who Legal Arbitration and recommended by Chambers Global and the Legal 500 UK. As noted by Chambers Global (2019, 2020), “London-based Milo Molfa has notable activity in cross-border arbitrations and further advises on commercial litigation proceedings. He frequently assists with Italian mandates, for which one client deems him to be a ‘rising star’ and adds: ‘He’s fearless, he works extremely hard and he’s a terrific writer.’”

Curtis worldwide Chairman George Kahale III said, “We are delighted that Milo is joining our international disputes group. We are always looking to maintain our leadership position in this vital area of practice by adding highly talented and motivated lawyers who are comfortable working in an international environment. Milo fits the bill, and we expect him to be a huge success at Curtis.”

Milo Molfa said, “I am honored to join Curtis’ pre-eminent disputes practice and I look forward to working with my new colleagues to contribute to the firm’s continued growth and success.”
