Christopher Koch brings to Landolt & Koch twenty-five years of experience in international arbitration and dispute resolution. As counsel and co-counsel, he has represented parties in disputes relating to construction contracts, industrial design agreements, mergers and acquisitions as well as international agency and commission contracts as well as international sales agreements.
Christopher is frequently appointed to serve as Chairman, Co-arbitrator or Sole Arbitrator in international commercial arbitrations. He has conducted arbitrations under the rules of the ICC, the LCIA, the AAA’s ICDR and the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration. Believing that justice delayed is justice denied, Christopher seeks to implement efficient arbitral procedures that will allow the parties and the arbitral tribunal to resolve the dispute as expeditiously and cost-effectively as possible.
As a former counsel to the ICC’s International Court of Arbitration, Christopher has an insider’s view of how the Court functions and applies its rules of arbitration.
Before studying law, Christopher followed in the footsteps of Mark Twain, working as a deckhand on riverboats on the lower Mississippi and the Intercostal Waterways in Texas and Louisiana. He also obtained a bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington University in St. Louis.
