Founding and managing partner of HANEFELD, Dr. Inka Hanefeld, completed her 6-year term as a Vice-President of the ICC Arbitration International Court of Arbitration and shares her personal reflections:
“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as a Vice-President of the ICC Court for 6 years. I have enjoyed every moment of my involvement in the Court’s work and know that the Court is headed in an excellent direction under the leadership of Claudia Salomon. I would like to thank all my colleagues of the ICC Court and Alexis Mourre, who has done an outstanding job as President, including by maintaining the ICC as the world’s preferred arbitral institution and continuously making it more diverse and inclusive. I would also like to extend my gratitude to the members of the Secretariat for their dedication and fantastic work. It has truly been a pleasure to work with all of you. I wish the incoming members a great journey.“ – Inka Hanefeld
