The Law Offices of Charles H. Camp, P.C. is pleased to announce that Kiran Nasir Gore has joined the firm as Counsel. Ms. Gore will work on all facets of international dispute resolution, including commercial and investment arbitration, international litigation, judgment enforcements, and asset and debt recovery actions.
Ms. Gore brings to the firm over ten years of expertise in public and private international law, foreign investment strategies, and advocacy in U.S. and international settings. She has extensive experience in commercial arbitration under various rules and institutions, investor-state arbitrations before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and ad hoc tribunals, and in U.S. litigation, including litigation in aid of arbitration. She honed her skills as a Senior Associate at Three Crowns LLP in Washington, D.C. and as an Associate at DLA Piper LLP in New York.
She has represented governments, corporations, institutions, and private individuals all over the World, including in Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. Her successful track record includes several important and high-profile disputes. In April 2018, her work resulted in a $2.04 billion ICC award against PDVSA for harm arising out of governmental fiscal measures and the ultimate expropriation of two of ConocoPhillips’ extra-heavy crude oil projects located in Venezuela’s Orinoco Oil Belt. Earlier, she worked on Ghana’s defense team in an UNCITRAL commercial arbitration concerning the validity of a power purchase agreement. In 2014, that team’s advocacy led to the dismissal of all but one of the investor’s damages claims.
In welcoming Ms. Gore to the firm, Mr. Camp remarked, “After having my own law firm for the last 18 years focusing exclusively upon international dispute resolution, Kiran’s joining my firm as Counsel is nothing short of magnificent.”
The Law Offices of Charles H. Camp, P.C. draws on more than 35 years of legal expertise representing clients from around the World to solve complex international disputes through international litigation, arbitration and debt recovery. Significantly, the Firm, whose creed is, “whoever has the best information wins,” is able to draw upon decades of experience working with top former intelligence officers from numerous international and domestic agencies to obtain highly confidential information essential not only to obtain, but also to collect, favorable judgments and arbitral awards.
Currently, among other significant international cases, the firm represents American economist Dr. Maya Dangelas, Chairwoman of Tan Tao Energy Corporation, in a recently launched UNCITRAL arbitration against the former Prime Minister, Nguyen Tan Dung, of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam for investment and lost profit damages in excess of $2.5 billion.
Ms. Gore commented “I am thrilled to be partnering with Mr. Camp. He is a consistent and successful advocate for his clients,’ interests, with an interdisciplinary approach that combines legal expertise with creative problem-solving. Our approaches to legal practice have natural synergy and I look forward to making his Firm the home for my practice.”
