Jay L. Alexander

Mr. Alexander co-chairs Baker Botts’ International Arbitration and International Disputes Resolution Group. With over 25 years of experience, his practice focuses on international arbitration, including both commercial and public international law disputes.

Mr. Alexander has substantial experience as first-chair advocate and also sits as an arbitrator. He has acted in arbitrations conducted throughout the world, and under the auspices of many arbitral institutes, including the ICC, ICDR, ICSID, LCIA, Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, as well as ad hoc and UNCITRAL Rules proceedings. These disputes arise in many industry sectors (including energy, construction, finance, insurance, shipping, technology and manufacturing), and frequently present multi-jurisdictional issues implicating the laws of more than one nation and/or public international law. Mr. Alexander also litigates enforcement proceedings and defends the interests of foreign sovereigns in United States courts.

Mr. Alexander has helped parties resolve disputes arising in many jurisdictions, including Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, Egypt, England, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Mongolia, Mozambique, the Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Qatar, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, the United States and Venezuela. These matters have involved both disputes between commercial entities and disputes between foreign investors and their host States.

Mr. Alexander was a law clerk for present Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg while she was serving on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He has served as a Deputy Judge of the International Court of Appeal of the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile and has taught trial advocacy for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy.
