Alexis Mourre

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Executive Board has recommended that Alexis Mourre be appointed to succeed John Beechey as President of the ICC International Court of Arbitration®. Mourre’s presidency will begin on July 1, 2015. The recommendation will be submitted to the ICC World Council for approval at its meeting in Turin, Italy in June 2015.

The International Court of Arbitration® is the world’s leading body for the resolution of international disputes by arbitration. Each year, numerous parties, arbitrators and lawyers from countries of every economic, political and social system are present in ICC arbitrations.

“It is for me a great honor and privilege to have been selected to succeed John Beechey,” said Mourre. “I warmly thank the Selection Committee, the ICC Executive Board and the ICC Chairmanship for their trust. I look forward to building on the successes of the outgoing presidency to continue improving the quality and efficiency of the services provided by the ICC International Court of Arbitration®.”

A vice president of the ICC Court, Mourre is a member of the Paris Bar and the founding partner of Castaldi Mourre & Partners, a leading boutique international arbitration and litigation practice. Mourre’s longstanding links with ICC also include service as a vice president of the ICC Institute of World Business Law.
