It is with great sadness, CRCICA is mourning the passing of Professor Emmanuel Gaillard, the prominent practicing attorney, and former Board of Trustees member.
Professor Gaillard was known as much for his extensive academic and publishing work and for his legal accomplishments. Professor Gaillard died suddenly and unexpectedly on April 1st, according to a statement on the website of Gaillard Banifatemi Shelbaya Disputes, the boutique firm he just co-founded in February, just two months after he left Shearman & Sterling.
In a statement, his firm said 69-year-old Gaillard was “a totem in the world of international arbitration and a source of inspiration for lawyers across the world. Arbitrators, practitioners, academics, and clients universally admired his brilliance, integrity, humanity, and dedication”.
CRCICA expresses sincere condolences to Professor Gaillard’s family, friends, and colleagues.
