Who’s Who Legal featured Jenner & Block Partner Mélida Hodgson in a profile in the latest edition of its WWL: Thought Leaders Arbitration 2020. In the Q&A, Mélida shares what inspired her to specialize in arbitration, and weighs in on planned proposals for a multilateral investment court, challenges tribunals are facing when handling arbitration proceedings involving corruption claims, and claims based on disrupted climate change obligations, among other topics. She also gives advice to aspiring arbitration practitioners and encourages more experience lawyers to play a role in their development. “You need to find ways to give younger lawyers the opportunity to have leading roles, in both the written and oral stages of proceedings,” she writes.
