Reginald R. Smith’s practice focus is international arbitration and cross-border litigation, with a particular specialty in handling commercial disputes in the energy sector as well as representing investors in disputes with sovereigns under multilateral and bilateral investment treaties. Reggie has served as lead counsel in obtaining some of the largest international arbitration awards on record.

Reggie has a leading practice in representing investors as claimants in bilateral and multilateral investment treaty arbitrations against governments that have taken actions to either destroy or impair investments through conduct ranging from outright expropriations to the revocation or modification of investment incentive programs.

Relying on years of experience in representing companies and individuals in significant business litigation disputes in U.S. courts, Reggie brings advocacy skills to his international arbitration practice that have yielded some of the largest investment arbitration awards on record. For example, Reggie served as lead counsel in an arbitration for a European oil and gas company against the Government of Kazakhstan that yielded the largest award on record under the Energy Charter Treaty.

Using experience developed as a seasoned oil and gas litigator in the U.S. courts, Reggie also has deep expertise in representing energy companies in international and domestic commercial arbitration disputes.
