CMS' Malgorzata Surdek-Janicka has been appointed as Vice-President of the International Court of Arbitration at the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris. Aside from Surdek-Janicka, 33 lawyers from CEE were appointed as members and alternate members of the court.

According to CMS the appointment, effective July 1, 2021, represents the first time a lawyer from Poland will serve as Vice-President of the ICC Court.

"This nomination is a distinction not only for me personally but above all for the Polish National Committee of the ICC and – more broadly – the entire arbitration community in Poland," said Surdek-Janicka. "What’s important for the business community is the expeditious and cost-effective conduct of arbitration by independent and impartial arbitrators – specialists in various areas, as well as the prompt delivery and the enforceability of arbitral awards, which, in respect of international arbitration, is safeguarded by the 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, of which Poland is also a signatory."
