As part of her role, Sabrina will participate in decisions and processes such as appointing and confirming the appointment of arbitrators, deciding over challenges of arbitrators, scrutinizing draft arbitral awards, and fixing the costs of arbitration..

Sabrina said: "I am delighted and honoured to serve as member of the ICC Court and to represent Algeria in this prestigious role. I look forward to working with the President of the Court and my fellow members from all around the globe, and will do my best to contribute to the continuing efficiency and excellency of ICC arbitration.”

Sabrina joined DWF Paris in January 2018 from Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, along with Partner Jérôme Lehucher and Senior Associate Victor Datry. She regularly acts as Counsel for States, state-entities and private companies in both commercial and investor-State arbitrations for a wide range of clients from Africa, Russia, Europe, Central Asia and South America.
