Jonathan Stoel is the global co-Head of Hogan Lovells’ International Trade and Investment practice, co-chair of the firm’s Public International Law (PIL) group, and serves on the firm’s One Americas management team. For more than two decades Jonathan has handled international trade and PIL matters on behalf of sovereigns and companies, resolving clients’ complex global and U.S. disputes and policy matters. Jonathan has specific expertise with respect to North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) matters.

Jonathan supports clients in many industries, including the steel, pharmaceutical, energy, agriculture, and consumer products sectors. He regularly appears in administrative proceedings before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), and he litigates appeals of those agencies’ decisions before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT). Jonathan also secures resolution of complex international disputes through arbitration before panels constituted pursuant to USMCA, NAFTA, the World Trade Organization, and the London Court of International Arbitration. 

Jonathan also represents claimant investors and governments in investment arbitrations before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), as well as in ad hoc arbitration under the Arbitration Rules of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). Jonathan regularly works with clients to develop strategies to avoid protracted and costly investment dispute settlement proceedings.
