Olswang is ramping up its international arbitration group with the hire of at partner at Swiss firm Bär & Karrer.

Michelle Sindler, who acts as both an arbitrator and mediator, brings the litigation and arbitration group partnership up to 15 members.

Richard Bamforth, international arbitration partner in charge of growing the group, said Sindler brings a new dimension to his department.

“Michelle’s practice has no overlap with what we’re doing already and so complements the group perfectly, with her bringing a high level of contacts in areas outside of those held with our current lawyers,” said Bamforth. “Her arrival reaffirms Olswang’s commitment to growing its international arbitration practice in accordance with the needs of our clients and the current market.”

Sindler’s practice focuses on the pharmaceutical industry, as well as disputes arising out of construction and industrial projects.
